Afternoon Tea Week



Afternoon Tea Week, celebrated annually in the UK from the second to the last week of August, is a delightful and quintessentially British celebration of the cherished tradition of afternoon tea. Dating back to the early 19th century, afternoon tea has been a beloved social custom, offering an opportunity to indulge in a selection of dainty sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, and an assortment of delicate pastries, all served alongside a steaming pot of tea. This special week encourages people to embrace the elegance and conviviality of afternoon tea, whether by partaking in the ritual at home, in a quaint tearoom or at a luxurious hotel. It also serves as a time to explore the art of tea blending, the history of afternoon tea, and to experiment with new and creative twists on traditional tea-time treats. Afternoon Tea Week provides a perfect excuse to gather with friends, family, or colleagues and indulge in the timeless pleasure of a well-appointed afternoon tea, all while celebrating this cherished aspect of British culture.
