Caroline Hope, September 2017

Enjoy an authentic English afternoon tea experience  in London, England.

Have you ever wondered …

  • Why tea is associated with England?
  • What types of tea are considered British?
  • How does a domestic tea party differ from hotel-served afternoon tea?
  • In Georgian England, what food was regarded as ‘proper to serve with tea in an afternoon’?
  • Why does a tea party traditionally take place after noon?

Caroline Hope is waiting at her authentic English tea table here in London.  From learning to bake your own scones to an immersive four day course to discover everything there is to know about English tea culture, Caroline will provide you with the answers.
