Afternoon Tea

Anna Maria Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford (1783-1857) is often credited with the creation of the tradition of the Afternoon Tea in the early 1840's. Traditionally dinner was not served until 8:30 or 9 in the evening and the Duchess often became hungry, especially in the summer when dinner was served even sundown. She ordered a small treat of bread, butter and other niceties, such as cakes, tarts and biscuits, to be brought secretly to her boudoir. When she was exposed, she was not ridiculed, as she feared.

On the contrary, her habit caught on and the ritual of a small treat, of niceties and tea, became popular and well known as 'Afternoon Tea'

When the Ritz-Carlton Montreal opened in 1912 it became known for its legendary style and impeccable service. The hotel also became known as a comfortable spot for Montrealers to enjoy 'Afternoon Tea' and socialize.
