Bennet's Tea at Stoneleigh
Traditionally, the upper classes serve a “low” or “afternoon” tea around 4:00 PM,like at the fashionable promenade in Hyde Park, at which one might find sandwiches, scones, and cake.
Middle and lower classes have a “high” tea later in the day, at 5:00 or 6:00. It is a more substantial meal essentially, it’s dinner which includes bread, meats, pies, scones and cake.
The names derive from the height of the tables on which the meals are served. Low tea is served on table, which in the United States would be called “coffee tables.” High tea is served on the dinner table.
