Tea for Two and Two for Tea ...



"Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors."

Alice Walker



Did you know Afternoon Tea was first introduced to England in 1840 by Anna the 7th Duchess of Bedford and great friend of Queen Victoria. She used to get peckish around 4pm with her evening meal not being served until 9pm, she asked for her tea, bread and butter and cake to be brought to her. This became a habit of hers’ and she began to invite friends to join her.


By the late 1800’s upper-class society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats to take afternoon tea which was usually served in the Drawing room between four and five o’clock.


Traditionally afternoon tea consists of delicate finger sandwiches, warm scones served with jam and cream and a selection of dainty cakes and pastries. All served with a cup of tea.


Did you know Flore House now offers an exquisite Champagne Afternoon Tea. So come and indulge in the finest British tea tradition with us!
