8. What is High Tea?

Afternoon Tea and High Tea are now used interchangeably. Traditionally, Afternoon Tea was a social event in itself enjoyed by the upper classes between meals while it was more of a necessity for the working class who have evolved it into an actual meal adding more substantial items to it such as bread, cheese or pie. The term ‘high tea’ is thought to be related to the settings in which this was served: upper classes would sit on low chairs and sofas while having tea and the working class would have it at a table.
