“Afternoon Tea is unmistakably a truly British custom now known worldwide but with its origins in 19th century England. The credit for the custom of the Afternoon Tea goes to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century when serving dinner as late as 9:00 pm which left the Duchess hungry. To stave off that hunger she would order tea, bread, and cakes in her room. The habit caught on and afternoon tea was born.”
