History of Afternoon Tea

Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857) is considered the originator of afternoon tea. She was a lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria. At that time, lunch was apparently becoming increasingly scarce, which led to the noble lady being plagued by a strong feeling of hunger between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. At first she enjoyed small meals in secret, but later she invited other ladies-in-waiting to her chambers to have an additional afternoon snack together. This snack was so successful that it was eventually adopted by her guests. Thus afternoon tea was born.
