It looks like the last activity I got to be a part of was a high tea. Now high tea is different than afternoon tea. The way the British tradition goes is afternoon tea is a mid-afternoon snack around 3-4. served with biscuits or cucumber sandwiches. Basically the stereotype of what people think tea time should be. High tea replaces dinner. This means there are meat pies (one was pork with a gelatin brown sauce, the other was pork and apricot. Both were tasty.), quiche, meats and cheeses, breads with all the relish and pickled onions, and vegetables. It's things like this that I will miss about London. It makes no sense, everyone knows that and does it though because it's been done for so long that way. But that's what I love about it.
