High Tea in Amsterdam

But what exactly is a High Tea? The High Tea is founded in England and is a light meal that is consumed between 15:00 and 17:00. The story is that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford (around 1840) was really hungry around 16:00 and could not wait until dinner. Her waiters prepared a light meal with sweet and savory bites and several kinds of teas.

Anna was a real trendsetter because many women in England took her example and the High Tea was born! Because there is a large variation of dishes, the High Tea is served on a shelf. It creates a cozy and charming look on your table. Throughout the years the High Tea got his modern twist and it is still a popular way of having a meal in the afternoon.
