NileGuide Expert Says:
- The English tradition of taking afternoon tea came about in the nineteenth century after the Duchess of Bedford reportedly suffered from "a sinking feeling" at about four o'clock in the afternoon. She took tea and a light snack in her rooms and then started asking guests to join her, serving them small cakes, sandwiches, a selection of sweets and of course tea. Make like a lady with a Sydney high tea at Sir Stamford which includes fluffy homemade scones, strawberry jam and fresh King Island cream. Nibble on gourmet morsels and canapés with a glass of champers amid ticking grandfather clocks and Louis VI antiques.
