My goal is to visit 50 Afternoon Teas/High Teas over the next two years.
If you’re looking for unbiased journalism or a critical review site, sadly, you won’t find it here. Why? Because there just aren’t too many things we don’t like about afternoon tea.
Let me also briefly clarify that High Tea and Afternoon Tea are, in fact, two very different things. Afternoon Tea has a 19th century English-aristocratic origin and evolved into a social gathering that included light food to tide one over between lunch and the evening meal. High Tea is generally served later in the day with “heavier” foods and is considered a replacement for the evening meal.
