The origins of 'Afternoon tea'

Whilst there may be many people to thank for the delightful indulgence that is Afternoon Tea, there can be few that lay more claim to it’s creation than Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. With her evening meal being served ‘fashionably late’ at 8 O’clock she was left feeling peckish during the afternoon. Thanks to the Earl of Sandwich having the genius idea of putting meat between two pieces of bread she decided to take this idea further by asking for tea, sandwiches and cake to be brought to her in the late afternoon thus creating one of the most quintessentially British meals…Afternoon Tea.
