What was my Grandmother's CUPPA TEA in early 1900's


"The ritual of English teatime was perfected by Queen Mary, for whom it was a treasured time of day...Sandwiches, cakes and biscuits were invitingly set out on gleaming silver dishes. 

The teapot, hot water jug, cream jug and sugar bowl were the same antique silver service that had been the favourite of Queen Victoria."  --- Dinner at Buckingham Palace
