Afternoon tea means so many things to so many people. It can be a meal and a respite, a time for celebration and for decorum, an indulgence or a necessity. Often, the emphasis is on the food rather than the tea. With fare like delicate scones and flavorful tea sandwiches, there's nothing wrong with focusing on the food! But a little attention paid to the tea itself can make afternoon tea an even more enjoyable experience.
