Afternoon Tea is an English tradition whereby tea is served
perhaps in the garden – weather permitting – at a
table covered with a pretty tablecloth with napkins and adorned
with a vase of fresh flowers.
The tea is poured from a teapot into pretty cups with saucers
and the food which may consist of cakes, scones and biscuits (cookies)
and sometimes sandwiches - often cucumber sandwiches - is arranged
daintily on plates, doilies too are often used. The cakes might
also be arranged on an elegant cake stand.
In addition a creamer may be used for the milk and a sugar bowl
for white sugar or sugar cubes.
