What’s the history of Afternoon Tea Set?

Once upon a time, Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford became hungry during mid-afternoon but dinner was served late at eight o’clock. Therefore, the Duchess requested tea and snacks and it become one of her habits. This is how the afternoon tea set is introduced in England.

Traditonally, the afternoon tea set is served with finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam. It’s become a good tradition in England. In Hong Kong, restaurants would diversify the food selection in the afternoon tea set to bring a special dining experience to the guests.
