It is believed that Queen Catherine of Braganza brought the tradition of afternoon tea with her from Portugal to England in the middle of the 1600s. And, subsequently, “Afternoon Tea” spread slowly but surely throughout the British Empire.
The English-inspired Afternoon Tea is typically accompanied by scones. But other cakes are also delicious.
