The Anchor Bar and Terrace
The British love affair with ‘a cup of tea’ is enacted daily in homes throughout the land. Afternoon tea at The Chelsea Harbour offers an extensive range of teas deliciously accompanied with a tremendous amount of cake, classic sandwiches, scones served with clotted cream and jam, best enjoyed while sipping on a perfectly crafted cocktail or a refreshing Champagne.
When did Afternoon tea become a ritual?
Anna Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, introduced to the wonderful idea of English afternoon tea in around 1840. The duchess would become hungry around 4pm, so she often asked for a tray of tea, bread & butter, and cake to be brought to her room. This became a habit of hers and she started inviting friends to join her. A ‘pause for tea’ soon became a fashionable social event. During the 1880s, society women would change into long gowns, gloves, and ornate hats for their afternoon tea, which was usually served in a formal drawing room between 4 – 5pm.
