This great British custom was started by the Duchess of Bedford in 1830 when she ordered a light meal between lunch and dinner. By the 1840's wafer thin slices of bread holding finely chopped cucumber, platters of light sponge cakes and freshly brewed pots of tea were being served all across London.
The Afternoon Tea has seen somewhat of a revival in recent years and here in Germany there is a certain trend towards this very British custom.
