Types of Teas and Approximate Pricing
Afternoon Tea: This quintessentially British tradition is a light meal served during the mid-afternoon hours consisting of finger sandwiches, fruit and crepes. Dating back to the early nineteenth century, this custom has proved it is here to stay and can be enjoyed not only in Great Britain but in Mountain View as well.
Pricing from $15.00 to $25.00 per person
High Tea: Although often confused with Afternoon Tea, High Tea is traditionally completely different than the famous light and sweet mid-afternoon meal. High Tea gets its name from the high tables it was originally served upon to the working class at the conclusion of the long and laborious workday. This meal is more closely related to supper than Afternoon Tea, consisting of heavier, hot, and savory dishes such as meats or fish with sides of vegetables and breads.
Pricing from $20.00 to $35.00 per person
Cream Tea: Focused only on tea and scones with cream and jam, the Cream Tea is a much simpler yet no less satisfying version of Afternoon Tea. This can be less formal, less expensive, and faster than the traditional Afternoon Tea experience. This delight can be found in many cafes and coffee shops throughout Great Britain.
Pricing from $8.00 to $15.00 per person
Elevenses: This late morning snack gets its name from the time it is usually enjoyed, around 11:00 a.m. It typically consists of a cup of tea accompanied by a piece of cake, muffin, crepe or biscuit.
Pricing from $12.00 to $19.00 per person
