This lovely tea was served by the men of the Skelton family. In Yorkshire, this may be considered "tea", that to us should be an early dinner. In some areas of England a setting like this may be part of "high tea", a meal that would be served between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. to hold one over for a full meal at 8:00 or 9:00 p.m.
Traditional cakes or fancy cakes such as this may be featured with afternoon teas. This beauty is credited to Julie Skelton.
Take tea......take a pause, enjoy the ritual. Make an occasion of this simple and beloved custom of the United Kingdom.
