In England, during the 1840’s, afternoon tea was a common tradition amongst the wealthiest of classes. The afternoon tea was a small, social meal held in the late afternoon. This traditional meal consisted of loose brewed tea and was accompanied by finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, jam, small cakes and pastries.
This tradition is still alive and well in the UK. The North Vancouver Island also has a significant population of English expats that still practice such tradition today in their households in Canada.
On Thursday March 28, the Campbell River Immigrant Welcome Centre is hosting a traditional style Expatriate Tea Party. The tea party starts at 4 p.m. at the Robron Centre and includes tea and snacks and great discussion.
So whether you are from the UK, the US, New Zealand or Australia or anywhere else you’re invited to the first ever Expatriate Tea Party.
