High Tea should not be confused with Afternoon Tea it is something entirely different. High tea is a meal eaten in the early evening, usually between 5 oclock and 7 oclock. It can be regarded as a substitute for afternoon tea and supper. Historically, it is known as high tea because the meal was eaten at the high table in the dinning room rather than the lower table in the lounge. High tea is rarely eaten these days and has been replaced by supper or the evening meal.

The modern high tea is more closely related to afternoon tea. Light sandwiches, like watercress or fish paste may be offered. Even bread and butter sandwiches are quite popular. Scones and clotted cream are common in todays high tea, and cakes, pastries, petit fours, or a number of other dessert items, even cookies, can make up a high tea. When scones and clotted cream are served, high tea might also be called cream tea.
