High vs. Low
1. High tea actually refers to they type of table that is used for example, a dining room table, to place the food and drinks on.
It is equivalent to supper in the working class home and is a substantial meal served around 6:00 P.M.
2. Afternoon tea is served around 4:00 p.m. on a low table, called a tea table.
It is usually a light meal served with thin sandwiches, scones and biscuits to tide people over until a later dinner.
How Do You Drink Yours?
I use sugar and very little milk. I feel that without the sugar it is not the same.
There are some members of my family who drink it with absolutely nothing, no milk, sugar or lemon.
I guess they are getting the true flavor with nothing else in it to change the taste.
