1. It’s a celebration of togetherness

    Afternoon tea is an English custom that has continued for centuries. People from all over the world take part in it as it is a fun activity involving tea, food, and the company of our loved ones. Such combinations make for having a great time overall.

  2. It’s a celebration of tea

    Did you know that tea is the second most consumed beverage after water? Now that’s some dedication and passion because while we do need water for the sake of survival, there’s no scientific proof that says we need tea to survive. People have it because it tastes great, has tons of health benefits, and provides one with the right amount of energy.

This brief tea break session is accompanied by light snacks such as samosas, rotis, and cake rusks.
