While tea had been drunk in Britain since trade ties were established with India and China, it wasn't until the early 19th century that an etiquette was attached to its consumption. 'English Tea' or 'Low Tea' was a tradition among the upper classes of taking tea with cakes or sweetmeats between lunch and dinner; 'High Tea' was the more practical equivalent of the working classes, consisting of tea taken with a meat dinner.
