Tea is a British favourite, but it’s not always been that way. Fresh tea leaves were only introduced in the mid-17thcentury. In 1840, the practice of afternoon tea was created by the seventh Duchess of Bedford. To avoid a rumbling tummy before dinner, the Duchess would be served tea, bread, butter and a selection of cakes. It soon became fashionable, and is still enjoyed to this day as an afternoon treat.
