Afternoon Tea Origin  by:wikipedia the free encyclopedia
"Afternoon Tea originated in the United Kingdom, though various places that used to be part of the former British Empire also have such a meal." "However, changes in social customs and working hours mean that most Britons only take afternoon tea on special/formal occasions."

Food & Drink
"Traditionally, loose tea would be served in a teapot with milk and sugar. This would be accompanied by various sandwiches (see Tea Sandwich) (customarily cucumber, egg and cress, fish paste, ham, and smoked salmon), scones (with butter, clotted cream and jam — see cream tea) and usually cakes and pastries (such as Battenberg, fruit cake or Victoria sponge)." "The food would be often served in a tiered stand."

Hotel Teas
"While afternoon tea used to be an everyday event, nowadays it is more likely to be taken as a treat in a hotel, café, or tea shop, although many Britons still have a cup of tea and slice of cake or chocolate at teatime." "Accordingly, many hotels now market a champagne cream tea."
