Happy Birthday To Anna, Duchess of Bedford, Creator of Afternoon Tea!
"Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is said to have complained of "having that sinking feeling" during the late afternoon. At the time it was usual for people to take only two main meals a day, breakfast, and dinner at around 8 o'clock in the evening. The solution for the Duchess was a pot a tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon."
I became a tea drinker in 2009 and have enjoyed so many wonderful pots of different teas since then. I actually on one of my other blogs post about tea daily and I have an Instagram account that I share my daily tea photos and my collection of teacups.

Madelon kindly shares with us her photos of Samantha's Tea Cart what a treasure that would be to have!
So get out your best teacups and saucers and set up your own tea party in celebration of the woman who made that all possible Anna, Duchess of Bedford. Click here to learn more about her from Afternoontea.co.uk. Thank you Madelon for sharing this with us today!
