It all started when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, discovered that a light snack and a soothing cup of tea solved “that sinking feeling” in the late afternoon. Her close friend, Queen Victoria, quickly agreed, and introduced afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace. Before long, all of England paused to share this royal British pleasure. Savor it in your own home with 40 teabags of finest Ceylon teas, carefully blended for traditional full flavor, sealed in foil and packed—appropriately—in a palatial, embossed, reusable tin. 5½"w x 3 3/4"h x 3"d, with hinged lid. Makes a great hostess gift.
