 Did you know?

The tradition of High Tea began in the mid 1700s as an afternoon meal for working men and women. It was taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus the word ‘high’. Gradually, High Tea became an important social event for ladies and gentlemen of society, rather than a meal for the working class.

High Tea served a practical purpose, allowing society ladies and gentlemen the opportunity of a substantial meal before attending the theatre or playing cards. In 1754, John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, had the idea of placing meat and other fillings between two slices of bread, thus creating the first sandwich.

Historically, High Tea at NSW Parliament was a privilege reserved for members of Parliament, visiting dignitaries, consul representatives and members of the Royal family. Today, it is open to all.
