I was so excited to come across Afternoon High Tea. As a lover of tea, I began hosting small tea parties for my friends and I throughout the week. I am happy that this site provides accurate information about the difference of High Tea and Afternoon Tea. I really enjoyed the recipes provided on this site as well. The fruit scones and shortbread cookies are my favorite, and a huge hit at my tea parties!
