Afternoon Tea traditions

In Britain we decided that simply three meals in the day was not enough, so invented more to keep up with our appetites. Along with breakfast, lunch and dinner there are also a few other meals, in fact in the English vocabulary we have seven words for different mealtimes. This includes breakfast, brunch, elevenses, lunch, tea, supper and lastly dinner. Of course, we don’t eat all these meals every day, but occasionally treating yourself to afternoon tea is a brilliant idea full of cakes, scones, tea and sandwiches.

Another age-old debate we traditionally like to have here in Britain associated with afternoon tea is how you pronounce the word scone, does it rhyme with stone or gone? Whatever you like to call them, they’re delicious especially when they’re oozing with jam and clotted cream! Traditionally served with bone china, a silver tea pot and a slab of Victoria sponge and selection of sandwiches, it’s obvious why this extra meal was invented, it’s delicious!
