Mossgreen Afternoon and High Tea

Mossgreen Afternoon and High Tea

Mossgreen Tearooms serve High Tea seven days a week, 8am to 5pm.

The show-stopping Mossgreen High Tea is a must – served upon a three-tiered silver stand and showcasing delightful Butterfly Bloom by Wedgwood fine bone china, it is one of the finest High Tea experiences in Melbourne.

Mossgreen Tearooms serves an extensive selection of teas by artisan tea label T2, coffee by Lavazza and LaBella Cioccolata.

In 1840, Anna Maria Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford was credited with creating one of England's most famous traditions that still survives today - Afternoon Tea.

The Duchess regularly complained of "having that sinking feeling" during the late afternoon, probably due to the custom of the time for people to take only two main meals a day, breakfast and then dinner at around 8 o'clock in the evening!

She found the solution was to ask her maid for a tray of bread, butter, cakes and a pot of tea (usually Darjeeling) at around 3 o'clock to tide her over.

Initially taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon, she began to share her delightful new habit with friends, and "Afternoon Tea" soon blossomed into the quintessential social event of the day amongst the English aristocracy.

The 1920s marked the height of the craze all over the world and saw society hostesses vying with one another over important guest lists, pageantry and musicians for the occasion and staff specifically employed to serve the afternoon-tea using elegant silver tea-ware and of course the best fi ne bone china and exotic tea leaves money could buy.

The phrase "High Tea" was coined at this time due to the trend for people to indulge in it sitting at a dining table seated on upright chairs - as they found it far easier and more enjoyable than reclining on sofas with low tables to enjoy their petit fours, macarons and finger sandwiches whilst sipping their dainty cups of afternoon tea.
