In Britain during the early 19th century, luncheon was typically small, and dinner was not served until well after 7 pm, so people were hungry by late afternoon. In 1840, Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, and lifelong friend of Queen Victoria, introduced “afternoon tea”, a light meal of tea and cakes or sandwiches served in the late afternoon. Afternoon tea (served between 4-6 pm) and high tea (served between 5-7 pm) remain lasting British traditions to this day.
