What time is best for high tea? ›

What are the 3 main foods served at an afternoon tea? ›

What do you wear to an afternoon tea? ›

Do you tip at high tea? ›

It's not your average plated meal, so what's the appropriate gratuity? “Tea servers are working just as hard as traditional meal servers and have studied diligently to learn the different varieties of teas, the menu, the types of Champagne, etc. So, tip the same as a standard meal,” suggests Mercer.

What do you eat first at high tea? ›
