Afternoon Tea Week: A Time to Indulge

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for tea lovers, that is! Afternoon Tea Week is upon us, and that means it’s time to indulge in all things tea. Whether you’re a connoisseur of fine teas or you just enjoy a good cup of earl grey, this is the week for you. So put on your favorite flowered dress, grab your best friend, and get ready for a spot of afternoon tea.

What Is Afternoon Tea?

Contrary to popular belief, afternoon tea is not just a cup of tea and a scone. Although, if that’s what you’re looking for, we won’t judge. Afternoon tea is an English tradition that dates back to the early 19th century. It typically consists of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, pastries, and of course, tea. Nowadays, afternoon tea has become quite an affair, with many hotels and restaurants offering their own unique takes on the classic tradition.

How to Celebrate Afternoon Tea Week

If you’re looking to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week in style, there are plenty of options available to you. Many hotels and restaurants across the UK offer special afternoon tea menus or deals during this week. If you’re feeling extra fancy, why not treat yourself to a trip to one of London’s famous afternoon tea spots? Or if you’re on a budget, whip up some finger sandwiches and scones at home with your favorite tea blend. However you choose to celebrate, make sure to do it with friends…after all, sharing is caring (and drinking alone is no fun).

Afternoon Tea Week is the perfect opportunity to indulge in one of England’s most cherished traditions. Whether you go all out with a trip to London or keep it simple with a cup of tea at home, make sure to raise a pinky finger and enjoy some quality time with friends. Cheers!
