High Tea means different things to different people. The origins of Afternoon Tea show clearly this was the preserve of the rich in the 19th century. For workers in the newly industrialised Britain of the time, 'tea' had to wait until after work and be substantially more than just tea and cakes. Workers needed sustenance after a day of hard labour, so the after work meal was often hot and filling and accompanied by a pot of good, strong tea to revive flagging spirits.
The addition of high is believed to differentiate between Afternoon Tea served on low, comfortable parlour chairs or relaxing in the garden, and the worker's High Tea served at the table and seated on high back dining chairs.
