TEA QUOTE



"The hour...can be anywhere between three and six o'clock in the afternoon.  The general rule is that the earlier tea is served, the lighter the refreshments.  At three, tea is usually a snack - dainty finger sandwiches, petits fours, fresh strawberries; at six, it can be a meal- or "high" tea - with sausage rolls, salads, and trifle."

Hello Bernideen,
that is a fabulous habbit to have a tea time. It is much more relaxing than a German Coffee time. Thank you for all the wonderful photos and the interesting quote.
Best greetings, Johanna
