Afternoon Tea

In the Classic Surroundings of Maitlandfield House

Maitlandfield  is certainly the ideal venue to enjoy the traditional afternoon tea, so let us pamper you and your friends with the old tradition. Invented in the 1660's when Charles II married Catherine of Braganza, a Portuguese Princess. 

She brought tea with her as part of her dowry. Unlike today, tea was scarce, expensive and subject to high taxation, a rare luxury good that only the royals and upper classes could afford.
