    History of Tea

  • The practice is credited to Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, a longstanding companion of Queen Victoria, in the 1840s. Most British people ate two big meals during the Duchess's time: a large breakfast served early in the morning and an 8 p.m. dinner (there was a light, informal luncheon in between). The Duchess complained of a "sinkful sensation" during the lengthy, snackless interval, and around 4 p.m., she began drinking a pot of tea and eating some light snacks in her room.

  • After Anna started inviting friends to meet her, the idea of an afternoon tea-based snack gathering took on. Other high-society hostesses replicated her gathering concept, hosting quiet afternoon gatherings with fine china, steaming tea, little sandwiches, and plenty of talk.

  • Tea parties were popular among the masses, who discovered that they were a reasonably inexpensive way to organize a party. The tradition of taking a mid-afternoon tea break eventually spread across English culture.

"The Lipton Tea pyramid bags were genius. So flavorful. I see they've put out a concentrate liquid. Will have to try that but will always enjoy my tea just as Lipton originally provided; rich and comforting."

Lipton Tea

"I wouldn't call myself a tea connoisseur, but I do appreciate a wide range of teas and am particular about black tea. I'm looking for something robust, with a lot of body, and the ability to withstand milk. My go-to tea is Twinings."

"This is fun to have the box of teas with so many choices. They are delicious and taste fresh. Would recommend - they come in a decorated cardboard box which would be suitable for gifting."
