It’s High Time for Tea - Kitchen Tea

A Tea Party Kitchen Tea!

If you’re planning a Kitchen Tea, but aren’t sure how to theme the day and want something unique and beautiful, why not plan a special High Tea for the Bride to Be?

The History Behind the ‘High Tea’

The tradition of High Tea goes back many years to the late 1700’s. In England at that time there were two main meals daily, Breakfast and Dinner. Dinner was served very late in the evening, so it was a very long time between meals. The Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861) complained about a “sinking feeling” in the late afternoon. Afternoon tea was her invention to keep her going until dinner.

She would invite friends to join her for tea at 5p.m (although this is not always the case to have it at 5pm – an earlier time is quite acceptable nowadays!). Other hostesses quickly copied her idea. Food at tea included such things as thin crustless sandwiches, shrimp or fish pate, toasted breads with jams and regional pastries such as scones and crumpets.

The emphasis was on presentation and conversation. Today different versions of High Tea can be found worldwide and has now returned, ever so popular, after all those years.
