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…)
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…
