   History of High Tea  
Kia Ora

The British tradition of High Tea began in the mid 1700s as an afternoon meal usually served between 3 and 4 o'clock. 

Initially, it was a meal for the working man, taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus 'high'. 

Tea with cakes, scones, even cheese on toast would have been served.

Gradually, this afternoon meal became more known as an important event on the social calendars of Ladies and Gentlemen, rather than a meal for the working man.

For the 'Leisure Classes', High Tea served a practical purpose, allowing Ladies and Gentleman the opportunity of a substantial meal before attending the theatre, or playing cards. (It might be a long time before Evening Supper could be taken!)

It was around this time that John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, had the idea of placing meat and other fillings between two slices of bread. 

Thus, the High Tea sandwich was created.

Courtesy of the British Empire, the tradition of High Tea spread across the globe, where it has remained a popular event ever since.

If you would like to order your very own High Tea, please get in touch to discuss your personalized options.
