Afternoon Tea in Wells The White Hart Hotel

Afternoon Tea IN WELLS at The White Hart Hotel

The ritual of afternoon tea owes its origins to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford.

As a young woman in the early 1800s she lived during a time when it was common to eat only two main meals a day, with breakfast scheduled early in the morning and dinner occurring late in the evening.

Routinely weakened and irritated by hunger pangs, she decided to schedule time to take tea and a snack each afternoon. This private ceremony was firstly done furtively in her bedroom, but over time well-heeled acquaintances joined her and the practice quickly became fashionable among the .

Head Chef Jason Porter spent 2 years working in the pastry section of The Connaught Hotel in London so expect some rather delicious treats.
