Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea was introduced by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting. In her day, the aristocracy ate a huge breakfast, little lunch, and a very late dinner. Every afternoon, the duchess experienced a "sinking feeling."One afternoon she instructed her servants to serve tea and little cakes in her boudoir. The experience was so delightful that Anna repeated it every afternoon thereafter. Soon others followed the Duchess' lead, and in just a few decades the custom of "taking tea" in the afternoon had become well established.

 

 
Simple but beautiful is the best!
Your tea may be Buffet Style or Sit Down for a smaller group. Each menu should include a Starter of some kind. We like to use a flavoured Champagne. We offer the Ice Tea at the same time for anyone who does not prefer alcohol. Special requests will be considered. All food items are finger food. This is a completely catered Tea Service.

The food tastes as good as it looks!

We like to offer a large assortment of teas for your guests to choose from. There are so many wonderful teas available today and everyone likes something different. Included in our Tea assortment would be: Green Tea, Spiced Tea, Chocolate Hazelnut Tea, Tea Forte, and many others. We normally just fill the teapot with boiling water. This is a great way for your guest to learn about some new tea they may never have had. If you have a special request we can try to make it available for you as well. Another Tea Pot will be filled with a Black Tea made from fresh Tea Leaves.

If you would like to add a 4th selection to the Savouries or Sweets just add an additional $3 per person per selection.
