Afternoon Tea

A light meal consisting of sandwiches, cakes and perhaps crumpets and scones. It became popular in the late 17th century, reaching a peak in the late 18 hundreds. It is differentiated from 'High Tea' which was/is more of a light cooked meal or early supper. Both would be accompanied by tea as a beverage.
