Afternoon Tea Week

Until last year, I didn't even know this week existed! That's 24 years without even knowing that there was a whole week to celebrate afternoon tea - I feel like I haven't lived until this point. 

The perfect afternoon tea for me has to include scones, to hell with mini sandwiches, just give me the good stuff. Scones, cupcakes, mini tarts, pavlova and lots and lots of processo alongside my cup of English Breakfast!

At Victoria's Sponges, we come to your house or the venue of your celebration/event. set everything up, bring all the crockery, glasses and cutlery - all we need from you is a fridge and a kettle.

Afternoon tea fun facts:

  • Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford would complain about hunger pains after having only two meals a day. Dinner was eaten later in the evening and so Anna scheduled time in her day to take tea. At first, the Duchess enjoyed afternoon tea alone before inviting her friends to enjoy the yumminess with her!

  • “High” tea originated from the height of the table, “High” tea was eaten at the dinner table

  • 165 million cups of tea are consumed every day in Britain

  • 30% of people enjoy sugar in their tea

  • 90% of people take milk in their tea

  • The most expensive tea bag in the world (of sorts) was created by Boodles jewellers to celebrate PG Tips 75th birthday! The diamond encrusted sack was worth £7,000 and was auctioned off for charity
