History

It is believed that credit for the custom of Afternoon Tea goes to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century. The usual habit of serving dinner as late as 9pm left the Duchess hungry in the late afternoon. To stave off the hunger she would order tea, bread and butter and cakes to be served in her room. This was thought to be an excellent idea and the habit caught on and the afternoon tea was born. Following on from this custom came the 'At Home' essentially an extension of the afternoon tea which involved inviting relatives and friends around for tea and sometimes entertainment - though more often just simple conversation and idle gossip. The hostess remained home all day to receive guests and serve tea, cakes and sandwiches. Protocol demanded on receiving an 'At Home' notice that unless regrets were sent, invitees must attend. John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, had the idea of placing meat and other fillings between two slices of bread.  Thus, the High Tea sandwich was created. 

The tradition of 'At Home' has long died out, but the serving of Afternoon Tea continues. In recent years High Tea has become a byword for exquisite afternoon tea and Just Tickled Pink has established a respectable reputation for serving the quintessential meal.
