Twas a great tea! Thank you very much for hosting!

That's a lot of decadent food. Typical of such a tea party. But I wonder if it's a more modern take on what was eaten. Or when did they eat only sweets at tea? As I understand the history, an afternoon tea back then wasn't just all about the dessert dainties. Am I right about this. http://www.jasonwitt.org/spirituality-of-tea.html

In fact, this period is before the advent of afternoon tea. Tea was simply
served as a social beverage. Afternoon tea came about in the 19th century,
and was indeed a heavier meal than just sweets. However, all of the sweets
served at this event are authentic 18th century recipes.
