According to the press this week ‘afternoon tea’ is overtaking coffee shops, left right and centre.

In fact, William Gorman, chairman of the UK Tea Council said, ‘What’s been happening in the last five to six years is that tea has become incredibly popular again. Hotels in London have really started to take afternoon tea seriously and demand for afternoon tea is colossal, and it’s a big earner !

Apparently many leading Hotels in London have become so popular that bookings are essential and some are putting on six sittings in one day!

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.


  1. Would ‘Afternoon Tea’ indicate ‘excelling coffee consumption’. There has been a long tradition of ‘Morning Coffee’ and ‘Afternoon Tea’….:>>


    1. Well according to some recent articles in numerous newspapers afternoon tea is busier (I think that’s the word) than coffee shops be it in the afternoon or late morning 🙂


  2. I love tea, especially chai….. I also particularly love clipper green tea and ginseng- it’s the GOD of green tea and doesn’t taste bitter….. This news pleases me 🙂


    1. I’ve never tried chai or the green and ginseng which I must try as apart from the benefits from the green tea, ginsend is also very good for you. 🙂
