What is High Tea?
High tea is a British tradition that goes back to the 1700s. It was originally a working men’s tradition, taken standing up or on high stools. This quick meal was usually served in the afternoon, between 3 and 4pm, and most of the time consisted of scones, cakes, or cheese on toast, along with tea.
The upper classes quickly adopted the idea of high tea as well, particularly the women. Dinner was often served quite late and high tea was a good chance for these upper-class women to socialise while waiting for their husbands to get home.
