I do love long walks with my dog in any kind of weather. But in the damp, windy winter day a good cup of tea with milk is such a great reward and makes me feel really happy. Luckily there are so many wonderful places to take a cup of tea: from tiny cozy cafes to the luxury old manor houses, turned to beautiful hotels. But do you know where the tradition to have an afternoon tea came from? Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. At the time it was usual for people to take only two main meals a day, breakfast, and dinner at around 8 o'clock in the evening. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon and it is said that she complained of "having that sinking feeling". She asked for a pot of tea and a light snack, privately in her boudoir. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock. Tea consumption increased dramatically and transferred to a national-tea-drinking-addiction. Just imagine - 165 million cups are drunk daily in the UK! . . . . . . . . . #rurallife #explore_england #lovegreatbritain #holidayuk #travelpic #instabritain #beautifulhotels #bestukpics #travelguide #lovetravel #visitengland #photosofbritain #verytandc #englishcountryside #stayandwander #ukshots #bestunitedkingdom #topukphoto #sussex #southofengland #exploreengland #postcardplaces #postcardsfromtheworld #ukholiday #ukscenery #gloriousbritain #loveuk #britishtea #oldtraditions

Checked off an item on my bucket list today ✔️at @the_berkeley during their fashion-themed afternoon tea Pret-Portea ☕️ Even better, I learned how to make a selection of these decorative desserts...or at least attempted to. Truthfully, I found the process really challenging and while mine didn’t turn out as pretty as the ones you see in this picture, it definitely gave me a deeper appreciation for the craft. #RoyalLondon

I think all we really want to do during this snow storm is to sit down with a cuppa! - One of my favorite posts of 2018 on ThePetiteBijou.com was most definitely @rachelfberry ‘s post about British tea drinking etiquette. So many things to learn. - For instance: did you know pinky up is not the way to drink tea? There’s many other tips - click the link in the bio to check them out! - Have you ever been guilty of sticking your pinky out when you drink tea? Or other beverages? - 📸: @rachelfberry for The Petite Bijou - #teadrinker #britishtea #teatime #hightea #lowtea #britishetiquette #etiquette #etiquettetips #protocolofficer #businessetiquette #britishculture #britishhistory #royalfamily #teaobsessed

New theme!! This is countries as people and England is the first! I went to England over the summer and everyone is always in turtlenecks even in the summer. They are so polite and bookish which makes me fall in love with every single British person 😂 - - - - - - - #nichememes #90saesthetic #momjean #coffee #shoes #british #britain #england #queen #queenelizabeth #book #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #whitechocolate #tea #britishtea #london #londonunderground #niche #nichememe #niches #nichememeaccounts #nichememecommunity #nichememeaccount #nichestarterpack #nichememer #nichememers

From ordinary to extraordinary! This week I made Bara Brith, a Welsh tealoaf. Not only is it a loaf eaten at tea time, it is made with tea! It was a simple recipe too, which was exactly what I needed this week. All I had to do was soak the sultanas (golden raisins), currants, and some sugar in the tea overnight, mix in flour and an egg, and bake. ⁣ ⁣ When I took it out of the oven, I was a little scared all the fruit had sunk to the bottom because I couldn't see any of it. I felt a tiny bit better when I took it out if the pan and I could see more fruit, but was thrilled when I cut into it and saw how well dispersed the fruit was. ⁣ ⁣ Super simple and incredibly delicious. It was very moist and dense with the fruit, but it wasn't heavy at all. I didn't think it could get better, but then I spread a bit of butter on top, took of sip of tea, and I was in heaven!⁣ ⁣ #barabrith #sultana #currants #tealoaf #welshtreats #baking #bakingismypassion #bakingfun #selfraisingflour #goldmedalflour #goldmedal @goldmedalflour #thisismypassion #instabaking #instafood #tea #simple #fullofgluten #sliceofheaven #pgtips @pgtips #britishbaking #britishtea

T I M E for another tea party! I had so much fun planning, decorating, baking, and hosting this party last year! It was a dream come true. I had been promising myself to do this for years, and finally set a date! I loved that my friends not only showed up, but dressed up too! Fascinators and all!! I have purchased and been gifted some new tea cups and tea pots since this party last year, so it’s time for them to be used! I might need to expand my table this time to fit more friends at it! 😍 . . . . . #everydayapril #ank #teaparty #teapartytheme #teapartyideas #friends #gatherings #girlfriends #partyhost #partyplanner #partyideas #pinterestinspired #tablescapes #tablescape #tablestyling #desserttablestyling #vintage #vintageteacups #vintageteapots #nicoledigipresets #britishtea #baking

Happy Friday everyone! Its so so cold here today, so I'm having lots of cups of tea to help me stay warm! I've just listed these very unusual and pretty English teacup trios with a quirky take on a traditional oriental style 'willow pattern'. I love the fun colours! I have two of these trios available in my shop and they date at least to 1930s, possibly earlier. I'm off to make another cup of tea now and put on another jumper, to help me stay warm - I was born in Yorkshire, I don't like to spend money on heating! £19 each (+postage), FREE pretty gift wrapping. Global shipping.
