What is Afternoon Tea?

Afternoon Tea is a delightful custom occurring between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. An in-between meal of delicate finger sandwiches, irresistible scones, savory bites, sweet treats, and perfectly brewed tea.

Teatime is an hour that bridges the distance between breakfast and dinner.

Henry James once said in The Portrait of a Lady:

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
