Sleepy Bear Reads About High Tea at The Empress Hotel

Hi Boys and Girls,

Yesterday, when I had High Tea at The Empress Hotel, I read about the history of high tea. Hundreds of years ago in England a duchess got weary everyday at about 5 o'clock in the evening. So, she started to have a mid-afternoon snack of tea and sandwiches so she wouldn't feel weary later in the day. She invited her friends to join her and then it became a daily tradition. The tradition still happens today! That's really interesting. I'm going to have high tea when I get home, too.

Bye for now,

Sleepy Bear
