Description: Afternoon tea is a tradition that began in the 1840’s. Due to the long period between meals the Duchesses would ask for bread, butter, and cake to be brought to her room mid-afternoon. (Smart lady 🙂 ) She than began inviting her friends to join and high tea was born!
Royalty, fancy, and relaxing….those three words remind me of what it feels like to enjoy “High Tea Time”. I had never been to high tea before, so we decided to try something new on Mother’s Day. We had a DePaul Alumni Discount, but most High Tea’s will run you between $50 – $80 a person. The Drake’s Tea Time is $65.00 a person and includes a hotel tour.
