Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

Afternoon Tea


1. Number Flexibility

Although suitable for small and medium numbers of guests, you can also invite larger groups of people to Afternoon Tea, as it has some of the elements of a buffet style gathering.

2. Children Friendly

Afternoon Tea is easily adapted to incorporate children, giving freedom for guests who are parents, to enjoy the social aspect for their whole family group – something a more formalised dinner has some difficulties in achieving. The shorter length of Afternoon Tea also means younger guests, who may become restless at longer gatherings, may have an easier time - not to mention their parents too.

3. Adaptable to Weather

Afternoon Tea provides greater flexibility for partaking either indoors or outdoors, according to the prevailing climatic conditions. It is also easy to transfer from one location to the other should weather conditions improve/deteriorate during the Tea.

4. An Alternative Time

Where personal schedules prove difficult to match, for a luncheon or dinner, Afternoon Tea can be a veritable delight in opening up the scope of social diaries.

5. Shorter Interaction

Rather than inviting people for a full meal, an Afternoon Tea is a way of introducing more casual or less well-known acquaintances into your social circle. It provides a degree of observation and interaction to be undertaken, with time to mutuality assess before joining them with your closer circle of friends for longer engagements. The assessment process permits you to find out likes and dislikes and better match them to other people whom you know.

6. Universally Appreciated

Whatever the circumstances, Afternoon Tea is in general, an internationally recognized product of universal welcome and hospitality. This is a tool a gentleman cannot fail to put to good use.
