High Tea

High Tea at De Bakkerswinkel (The Bakery) has become a tradition. From simple to elaborate, always at a festively laid table, intimate for couples or for large groups: every High Tea is a party.

 

High Tea, or Afternoon Tea, is actually an English tradition: 

'High Tea is a light meal, eaten between 15.00 and 17.00 in England. According to history books, Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in about 1840, was always hungry around 16.00 and could not or would not wait for her evening meal. A light meal was prepared for her that included various types of tea and so it was given the name Tea. The idea caught on to such an extent that all English men and women started drinking tea at 16.00. This tradition still exists. The English tea is not only the beverage, but a light meal with a selection of small, sweet and savoury dishes.'
