Past description: Legend has it that a Duchess was too hungry to wait for a late dinner so she began an afternoon custom of enjoying a selection of biscuits and cakes with her friends. Queen Victoria learned of this activity and also fell in love with the idea. By the late 1840's the royal household was hosting daily tea parties which later became known as afternoon tea.
