The etiquette experts gather to share some hints and techniques to help the honored guests prepare their own afternoon tea at home.

"Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, introduced afternoon tea to England in 1840. People there preferred to have only two main meals per day: breakfast and dinner. In the afternoon, the Duchess would get hungry. As a result, she directed the court ladies to prepare tea and light snacks such as scones with clotted cream, small biscuits, and finger sandwiches. The Duchess would also invite her noble friends to afternoon tea to discuss current events and other insights. Afternoon tea has since become one of England's most enduring traditions." M.L. Chiratorn 'To' Chirapravati explained the history of afternoon tea to the participants.

Aside from those highlights, the guest speaker stated that the proper order to enjoy the food that comes with afternoon tea is savory to sweet: sandwiches first, then scones, and chocolate last, depending on the preferences of each household.
