  • What is Afternoon Tea?

    Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.

    Afternoon Tea is a meal composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into 'fingers'), scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes. Interestingly, scones were not a common feature of early Afternoon Tea and were only introduced in the twentieth century.

    Afternoon Tea was initially developed as a private social event for ladies who climbed the echelons of society. It was only when Queen Victoria engaged in the Afternoon Tea ritual that it became a formal occasion on a larger scale, known as 'tea receptions'.

    These receptions could have as many as two hundred guests with an open 'at home' invitation to visit between 4pm and 7pm, during which they could come and go as they pleased; this was the genesis of the Afternoon Tea as we know it.

    In Britain today Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional indulgence or to celebrate a special event such as a birthday, or a pre-wedding or baby shower party with a group of friends.

    Traditional Afternoon Tea served in the Tara Restaurant

Our 30 year history at Hatton Hotels has enabled us to work exclusively with the best in business. Joseph Perrier is one of those chosen suppliers here at The Hatton Collection and we are proud to bring you a combination of history and future.

Joseph Perrier has been making fine champagne for nearly 200 years, gracing celebrations both high profile and private. Joseph Perrier was poured on the first Air France Concorde flight in 1976 and more recently celebrated the Nobel Prize for medicine. The name Cuvée Royale featured on the label celebrates the relationship with Queen Victoria and King Edward VII in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Today Joseph Perrier has a simple philosophy - concentrate on making the best champagne for the enjoyment of all. The House remains family owned to this day. The 21 hectares of vineyards are all planted on beautifully situated south facing slopes overlooking the River Marne, mainly Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The vineyards are treated with the utmost respect; Joseph Perrier were enthusiastic early adopters of a culture of minimum inputs in the search for equilibrium and balance in the soil. Wildflowers can be found alongside the vines and natural mulch in between the rows. All the grapes are hand picked into small baskets to make sure they reach the press in perfect condition.
