When Anna, the 7th Dutchess of Bedford complained of “having a sinking feeling” during the late afternoon, her solution was to indulge in a pot of tea & a light snack privately in her boudoir during the afternoon. Soon friends were invited to join her, and upon her return to London the tradition followed. Other social hostesses picked up on the idea and the practice became respectable enough to move it into the drawing room. Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling on sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
Here at Socra Tea we bring the traditions of high tea to 2019 and put our own unique spin on the centuries old practice. We bring unique desserts, exciting options for finger sandwiches and a vast selection of our teas. Experience high tea in a new & exciting way!
