Ladies Afternoon Tea

 
“Under certain circumstances there are few hours more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” - Henry James - The Portrait of a Lady
 
 
The ritual of afternoon tea owes its origins to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. Living during a time when it was common to eat only two main meals a day; an early breakfast and a late dinner. Anna decided to schedule time to take tea and snack each afternoon. This private ceremony was firstly done furtively in her bedroom, but over time other social hostesses quickly picked up on the idea and the practice became respectable enough to move it into the drawing room.
Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
 
 
Luxurious, elegant – and perfect for every day...
 
Our ladies afternoon tea begins with delicate finger sandwiches filled with smoked salmon, egg, chicken, cream cheese and cucumber, served with the pièce de resistance three tier stand with light, crusty scones and rich clotted cream accompanied by a variety of homemade cakes and pastries.
Served with as much tea and coffee as you ladies need to fuel the gossip, however why not add a glass of Perrier Jouet champagne; After all it is a ladies prerogative to enjoy only the finer things in life
