Origins

The origins of British afternoon tea go back to the seventh Duchess of Bedford in England, Anna Maria Russell. In the early 1800s, she developed the habit of serving tea and cakes in the late afternoon to avoid that sinking feeling you get when you’re on your own while the servants are busy preparing the main meal, traditionally served at 8pm. In those days, late meals were a real treat and something only the rich could afford. This elegant step between two more substantial meals was of course only served to those with time to spare, and its British distinctiveness lay in the fact that it was almost invariably accompanied by tea. The Tea Drop loose leaf selection is packed with the best of British, including the iconic Earl Grey and English Breakfast, as well as teas from all over Asia, such as the vibrant Oolong Rose, the exotic Oriental Jasmine, the zesty Lemongrass and Ginger, the invigorating Pure Peppermint, the sweet Cherry Blossom, and from other countries, such as the tangy Kiwi Berry, the fruity Fruits of Eden, and the calming Pure Chamomile. In contrast to the very aristocratic Afternoon Tea, the British High Tea was a more working-class affair, developed at the height of Britain’s industrialisation and urbanisation.
