Traditional English afternoon tea which consists of dainty sandwiches, scones and pastries served with cream and jam was made popular by Anna, Duchess of Bedford in 1840s – she would ask for tea and food to be served at about 4pm when she was hungry before dinner. Now this tradition has become a gastronomic indulgence for those who love an assortment of small treats which also look really pretty on photos.
