The Etiquette of Afternoon Tea

The afternoon tea is one of the most English of meals and traditions, going back to the mid 19th century. Not only will you get a high quality tea in one of London’s famous venues, such as Fortnum & Mason, Harrods or the Orangery, we will guide you through the history of tea in Britain and how afternoon tea came into being.
