What is High Tea? 

Traditionally high tea was the 5pm tea for the working class. It was served at a high table, hence the name! It’s usually made up of tea served with meat or fish dishes as well as vegetable or potato cakes and other baked goods. 

High tea has now become more of a dainty situation and is marked by much more class and extravagance than it was known for traditionally.
