Anna in an effort to ease the mid-day “sinking feeling”, began instructing her servants to prepare tea and cakes in the late afternoon. Thus began a fashionable habit, which still exists today. Early in British life tea was known as a health beverage and claimed all sorts of curative powers. In the 1650’s, Garaway’s Coffee House proclaimed that: “Tea makes the body active and lusty.
