It a very British thing to do, have afternoon tea. But what makes it not only a very British pastime but also a time when you can catch up with friends. Nothing quite like afternoon tea with friends.
Afternoon tea is what I call a quaint essential British pastime. A time when you can have tea and cake. But in all honesty, in my book, you can have tea and cake at any time of the day. And really if I’m honest, tea and cake is my main pastime, not just because I’m British.
Anyway, not one to turn down free tea or free cake. I recently had afternoon tea with friends. I think personally there is no better way to enjoy afternoon tea than with friends.
What can be better than a tray full of cakes and scones and have a good old gossip among friends? If you say, somewhere like Starbucks or a coffee shop; then you obviously never spent afternoon scoffing scones while gossiping about life.
As I was saying, I had afternoon tea with friends recently and let me tell you now, it was a gossip-fest. We all haven’t seen each other for a while so it was nice to catch up and to relay about life.
There was a lot of giggles among the scones, and as when all girls do get together, a little bitchin’ going on. But all in a good natural way.
The afternoon tea itself is nothing to write home about, it was a traditional British afternoon tea. I always think afternoon tea only ever works if it has tea (obviously), and of course cream scones and cakes. Forgo the sandwiches as I think all anyone is interested is in the scones and cakes. Well, I am anywhere.
So yeah, I recently had an afternoon with friends. A pleasant way to not only spent an afternoon but also to catch up and to generally have girlie chats.
My advice to you, if you are haven’t seen friends for a while and need a catch-up. Then go have a very British afternoon tea. You won’t regret, well maybe your waistline will but let not think about that for now.
