High tea us served at a high table and is basically a supper. It includes heavier and less-refined food than afternoon tea. Think eggs, cheese, meat rather than small sandwiches and scones.

Afternoon tea (or ‘low tea’ is traditionally served at 4:00 and is followed by a proper dinner around 8:09. Afternoon tea has fallen out of favor except for large hotels catering to tourists and Downton Abbey fans.

High tea is traditionally served in place of dinner, usually around 6:00 or so.

No, I do not think people stop work for high tea. It’s nothing more than supper and so people eat it when they arrive home from work. You don’t seem to understand what it is. See above.

Yes, that’s right. Knowledge has nothing to do with residency. I know for a fact that what high tea is and what afternoon tea is.

I never said these customs are still followed. I simply offered a definition because a good many Americans confuse the two. A friend of mine just wrote to me yesterday to say that she helped her priest serve a high tea to some major benefactors. What she really did was help her priest serve afternoon tea. People mistakenly think that “high” means better, nicer, more upper class. But it’s rather the opposite.

by Anonymousreply 81March 15, 2023 1:50 PM

The addition of the word "high" to the phrase "high tea" is believed to differentiate between the afternoon tea that is traditionally served on low, comfortable, parlor chairs or relaxing in the garden and the worker’s after-work high tea that is served at the table and seated on high back dining chairs.

Today, the evening meal in working-class households is still often called "tea" but as working patterns have changed yet again, many households now refer to the evening meal as supper.

I'm a bone dumb, poorly fed, poorly educated, overweight and dead drunk working class Brit. But however pathetic my situation, it will never be as pathetic or shaming as that of my American cousins.

Because unlike they, I will always have a safety net of state housing and medical care.

Because unlike they, I live in a country that looks after its poor, including its working poor.

It's not a country that enshrines free speech. It's not a country that believes in openness, and equality for all. But unlike the richest country in the world, which spits on its peasantry, this country of kings and queens, and lords and ladies, and vast inequality, nevertheless knows how to treat 'them downstairs'.

America has a very, VERY long way to go in emulating that achievement in respecting human dignity.

Working class Tories were a phenomenon once, as late as the 1970s and 1980s. Not sure it’s a thing now. I do know however in the last two General Elections many gay and Labour Party voters went Tory just for those elections.I had gay friends in the UK who told me they did so secretly. And in the last, landslide election, you had staunchly Labour areas (north of England for instance) which went Tory. In that election when the area north of Newcastle was reported Tory I knew it was going to be a landline. That area had voted Labour in election since there was a Labour Party. Whether this will happen next time is up in the air.
