A tea with a long historic resemblance, afternoon tea is a fashionable affair invented by the 7th Duchess of Bedford, Anna Maria. During the early 19th century only a light refreshment was served at midday between breakfast and dinner hence the afternoon tea was invented by the Duchess Anna Maria. Together with tea, an array of delectable goodies were served as accompaniments such as cucumber finger sandwiches, scones, petit fours which was a delightful dance on one’s palate. Even today afternoon tea is considered a stylish and a fashionable feminine affair which is a gathering of a group of people dressed in trendy attire enjoying the delight of afternoon tea. This is a perfect afternoon tea with a mild sweet taste and orange in colour once brewed.
