Becoming A Brit: Afternoon-Tea

Image
Afternoon Tea is the epitome of British culture. If you think of a 'typical' British person, your mind would drift to the likes of a good cuppa, scones and all the London tourist attractions you can think of! Today we have combined all of this wonderful history, to find you the most unusual afternoon teas in London. The tradition came about in the 1840's where there would be a long period of time between lunch and dinner. This was carried through time, adapted and loved by everyone. Of course, one thing is left unsettled. The age-old question, jam first, or cream? We don't want to start too many arguments so head over to our Instagram to have your say!

Everyone loves a theme, that's for sure! London is offering an exciting experience, where all your childhood dreams come true. Afternoon tea inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I don't think it can get better than this. Although this is on the expensive side at £62 per person this is an experience you w…
