First introduced by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford as The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The household meals were usually served around eight o’clock, which therefore left a long wait between lunch and dinner. She asked for a tray of tea and slices of bread and butter to be brought into her room. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. Soon after it became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper class and society, women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was traditionally served in the drawing room.
