Victorian tea had its beginnings in the early 1800s, when the 7th Duchess of Bedford, who disliked the long summer wait between lunch and dinner, retired to her boudoir to clandestinely partake of tea with “mackeroons, cheesecakes, tarts, biscuits, small cakes and other niceties.” Her neighbors discovered her secret and joined in her habit. Tea became not only acceptable but fashionable and was a marvelous opportunity to display one’s civility, sophistication and china.
