Anna Russell's treats, sweet and savory, tempt. China clinks. Conversations charm. Time slows. Afternoon tea begins and a historic moment lingers.

About This Blend

During the 19th century, it was the custom to take an early breakfast and a late supper. Anna Maria Stanhope, the seventh Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857), found that this long gap between meals resulted in a "sinking feeling" at about four o'clock, and so invented afternoon tea as a way to fill the gap. Complimenting your very best china, the three-tiered cake stand is the centerpiece of any Afternoon Tea party. Traditionally, it is customary to serve dainty finger sandwiches at the bottom, scones in the middle, and petits fours up top. With this display, you and your guests would start with the savory sandwiches and move your way up. Don't forget the devonshire cream and jam for the scones!

Traditional Afternoon Tea includes an array of classic dishes such as scones with Devonshire cream and small finger sandwiches, including cucumber, chicken salad and smoked salmon.

Teas that pair well with dainty finger sandwiches, scones with devonshire cream and jam, and delectable desserts. Our Duchess of Bedford blend is an elegant blend of muscatel Darjeeling, Ceylon, and perfumed Jasmine.
