The Origins of Afternoon Tea:
To truly appreciate the allure of Lawlor's Hotel and its afternoon tea, let's journey back to the 19th century. It was during this time that Anna, the Duchess of Bedford, found herself longing for a small meal to ward off the hunger pangs between lunch and dinner. The concept of afternoon tea emerged as a solution to this predicament. It quickly became a fashionable social event for the British aristocracy and eventually spread throughout the world.
As afternoon tea gained popularity, it became synonymous with refined elegance, delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and an assortment of pastries and cakes. Today, afternoon tea continues to be a beloved tradition embraced by countless tea enthusiasts across the globe.
