How Tea Parties Began: The English transformed drinking just hot tea to an afternoon event of special little tea sandwiches, and sweet little cookies and cakes. This was a simple afternoon ritual. Later they began "High Tea" which became a formal event, consisting of a group dressing in formal attire, an elaborate menu, and decorative place settings, as well as a quaint place to hold the gathering.
