Tea consumption increased dramatically during the early nineteenth century and it is around this time that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is said to have complained of “having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon. At the time it was usual for people to take only two main meals a day, breakfast, and dinner at around 8 o’clock in the evening. The solution for the Duchess was a pot of tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon.
So to avoid that ‘sinking feeling’ we are delighted to say that we are now serving traditional afternoon teas and cream teas at The Thomas Paine Hotel every day from 12pm-6pm.
