The Afternoon Tea has its origins in the early 19th century. Back then people had main meals only twice a day – once in the morning and once in the afternoon. This created, what the Duchess of Bedford, described as a “sinking feeling” in the late afternoon, which made her establish a new tradition – everyday around 4pm,  she had a pot of tea and a light snack in her boudoir. Later on she started sending out invitations to her friends and acquaintances and The Afternoon Tea turned into a social activity. Not long after, everyone who considered themselves up-to-date with the latest societal tendencies, enjoyed a light sandwich and a cup of tea in a nice company.

Although the Afternoon Tea  is nowadays considered only an occasional luxury in Britain, Bean and Berry is one of the few coffee shops to preserve this magical experience. You are welcome to enjoy one of Britain’s most special traditions- explore our Afternoon Tea offerings below, and if you want to make it even more special – Book an afternoon tea slot and tell us about your special preferences.
