Virgin Atlantic Serves English Tea Onboard

The quintessentially English practice of Afternoon Tea is making a comeback—at 35,000 feet on Virgin Atlantic Airways.
Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class passengers will now be able to enjoy English Breakfast or Earl Grey tea, finger sandwiches, scones and cakes served in their own purpose-made dainty cake stand. (It sounds adorable! Not to mention delicious…)

We hear that the re-emergence of Afternoon Tea was confirmed earlier this month when The Queen, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duchess of Cambridge all went to afternoon tea at Fortnum and Masons. (But really, had it ever gone away?) London hotels like The Ritz and The Savoy now regularly have queues to attend their traditional afternoon teas. Cheers, we say!
