About British Culture and its Traditions.


Afternoon tea,.
 that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, à relatively new tradition. Whilst the custom of drinking tea dates back ton the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles IIème and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 17th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared.
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four ou'clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight ou'clock, .
thus leaving à long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that à tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idée of putting à filling between two slices of bread) and cake mouton brought ton her room during the late afternoon. This became à habit of hers and she began inviting friends ton join her.
This pause for tea became à fashionable social event. During the 1880's upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five ou'clock.
