There’s something uniquely magical about afternoon tea. Maybe it’s because its origins are rooted in British antiquity, which is at once singularly quirky, and fabulous. Lewis Carroll’s enduring Mad Hatter floats to mind–a very civilized ceremony occurring in the midst of chaos, absurdity, whimsey, and madness. But that’s, perhaps, the joy of afternoon tea. It provides much-needed order, civility and beauty in a world that often seems mad, absurd and wholly uncivilized. It’s a moment (very much like Alice’s Wonderland) out of time–a place where one can leave the hustle and bustle of the world behind.
Tea Time is “Me” Time
Literary great, Henry James, one said of the very British tradition, “there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” The word “ceremony” seems key to the enduring popularity of afternoon tea, as it connotes not only tradition, but a time to honour and invite peaceful contemplation. And, in this modern world where one is constantly being barraged with social media and an increasingly disturbing 24-hour news cycle, perhaps one needs afternoon tea more than ever. It’s a perfect way to bring one’s friends together for intimate milestones, from celebrating the arrival of a newborn to paying homage to the departing of a loved one.
Whatever the occasion, an afternoon tea is a welcome, often needed, and always meaningful way to bring friends and family together. And did we mention it is highly instagrammable?
