Afternoon Tea  TEA-MASTER Roman Jahnel

There may be probably as many stories about the origin of an English afternoon-tea as there are tea-blends, however, the following one is definitely the most quoted. Early in the 19th century people in the U.K. used to have only two meals per day: breakfast and dinner. As legend has it, the 7th Duchess of Bedford assigned her servantry to serve her every day at 5 P.M. a cup of hot tea and some little savouries, as she needed something to appease her growing appetite at that time of the day. The experience of this little snack was most agreeable to her and quickly developed into a daily routine. Furthermore the Duchess even began to invite her friends to this little tea-ceremony, as to make them acquainted with her newest amusement. One thing led to another and within a few years the consumption of an afternoon-tea became a social event of the upper-class. Eventually this trend became so popular that tea-houses and coffee-shops began to offer this enjoyment to their guests. Today it is regarded as an essential component of the sophisticated British way of life.
