The tradition of High Tea began in the mid 1700's as an afternoon meal for working men and women and was taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus ‘high’. Gradually, this afternoon meal became more known as an important event on the social calendars for Ladies and Gentlemen, rather than a meal for the working class person. High Tea at NSW Parliament remains a highly popular occasion for members of Parliament, visiting dignitaries, consul representatives and members of the Royal family.
