High Tea

What is High Tea?

High Tea

High tea, also known as afternoon tea, is a British tradition that typically involves a light meal or snack accompanied by a cup of tea, served in the late afternoon or early evening. High tea was originally a meal for working-class people, but it became popular among the upper classes in the 19th century as a way to stave off hunger before the late evening meal.

High tea typically consists of tea, sandwiches, scones, cakes, and pastries. The sandwiches are usually small and filled with items like cucumber, smoked salmon, or egg salad. Scones are served with clotted cream and jam, and the pastries can include items like small cakes, tarts, or cookies.

High tea is often served in hotels, restaurants, or tea rooms, and it is a popular social activity for friends or family members to gather and enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea. Today, high tea is often associated with luxury and sophistication and is a popular pastime for tourists visiting the UK.
