History of what is popularly known as ‘High Tea’ dates back to the early nineteenth century, when it is rumored that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford was the pioneer in starting this fabulous trend. She is said to have complained of “having that sinking feeling” during late afternoon.  When it was usual around that time to only have two meals a day, she requested to have a pot of tea and a snack in her boudoir during the afternoon.  She later invited her friends to join her and then from there it caught on with other social hostesses.

High Tea is an age old English tradition. Sharing a warm pot of tea over scones, short cakes and savoury pies with friends in tapestry dressed salons was a mark of the socialising upper class since the time of colonial rule. Fortunately, the tradition did not fade, but wielded its way into modern culture too. Today High Tea is a casual affair and is a welcome reverie that celebrates the sweeter things of life. The Kingsbury keeps the tradition of evening time tea alive at its High Tea, daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at The Gourmet Station – the hotel’s patisserie overlooking the poolside.
