What is Afternoon Tea at The Saint Paul Hotel?

The Saint Paul Hotel Afternoon Tea includes an array of teas, beverages, and light, sophisticated snacks. Afternoon Tea is usually held between 1-3pm, and features our in-house Black Currant Tea, as well as fresh-baked delicacies and sandwiches, fresh cakes and pastries, and jam-filled scones.

Originally, Afternoon Tea was held as a private social event for high society women. During Queen Victoria’s reign, High Tea became a more formal and large-scale event. By the 1880s, upper-class women wore stylish hats, gloves, and gowns to Afternoon Tea. Eventually, Afternoon Tea spread throughout the socioeconomic groups, becoming a more accessible event for common folk.
