At the mention of high tea, one may become a little aflutter with
excitement and seize their most exuberant bustle and feather hat, but in
reality, high tea’s origins aren’t quite as exciting.
Back in the 1700s in Mother England, high tea was for the working man,
and there were no dainty finger sandwiches, no scones or cupcakes or
pastries – it was cheese and meats and bread, and of course tea (but not
exceptionally nice tea…)
Thankfully, we are in the midst of a high tea renaissance, and Cristina Re is
leading the charge with her High Society Collection. This stunning
metallic collection is inspired by a bygone era of elegance,
sophistication and glamour. Each piece in the beautiful range is crafted
from the finest quality porcelain and is embellished with lustrous
twenty-four karat gold stripes and spots to bring a touch of opulence to
your next cup of English breakfast tea.
This is high tea for the designer duchess, and she waits within us all…
