What is "afternoon tea"?

Afternoon tea is a tradition that originated in Britain and involves enjoying a light meal typically served in the late afternoon or early evening. It typically consists of a selection of finger sandwiches with various fillings like cucumber, egg salad, or smoked salmon, alongside freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and jam. Additionally, an assortment of sweet pastries, cakes, and biscuits are often served to complement the savory items. This elegant affair is accompanied by a pot of freshly brewed tea, often served in fine china cups with milk and sugar on the side.
