MOTHERS DAY HIGH TEA CELEBRATION-2016-BOOK NOW!
Is it really any wonder that this traditional afternoon gathering of old friends has experienced a resurgence in recent times? What a wonderful relaxing way to reminisce and recharge your batteries, whilst catching up on all the latest daily gossip.
It is said that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, was complaining of having that sinking feeling during the late afternoon. At the time it was usual for people to take only two main meals a day, breakfast, and dinner at around 8 o’clock in the evening. The solution for the Duchess was a pot a English tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon.
Later friends were invited to join in the practice, and before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon. Some say the term ‘high-tea’ evolved because it was served at the higher dinner table as opposed to in a relaxed garden setting. However some say that it signifies the time of day the gathering took place ie. high-noon. No matter which version you prefer, the high tea tradition is here to stay, and we’re proud to offer you and your friends the ultimate high tea Brisbane experience
