Afternoon tea has been a quintessentially English tradition since 1840 when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford decided that she needed tea and a light snack to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. Today, afternoon tea is an indulgence treat making it a great gift for any occasion, be it a thank you, Birthday, Mothers Day, moving home or wedding gift.
