Unveiling the Story Behind Afternoon Tea

Once upon a time, in a world filled with fancy clothes and even fancier manners, a trend emerged - afternoon tea. It was as if someone pressed the “pause” button in the middle of the day and decided, “You know what? We need a break from all this seriousness!”.
So back in the 1800s in England, afternoon tea became a trend. Legend has it that the Duchess of Bedford wouldn't bear waiting until dinner for her next meal. So, around 4pm, she decided to indulge in some snacks and a cup of tea. And just like that, a tradition was born. 
So, whether you're a tea lover or just want an excuse to indulge in sandwiches and sweets, remember that afternoon tea started as a rebellious hunger cure and turned into the charming tradition we know today.
