The Origins of Afternoon Tea.

The custom of the Afternoon Tea began with Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century. Usually dinner [or rather, supper] was served as late as 9 o’clock in the evening. This left the Duchess hungry in the late afternoon. To stave off the hunger she would order tea, bread and butter and cakes to be served in her room. This excellent idea caught on and the afternoon tea was born.
