Afternoon tea time at CSV

CSV Afternoon sessions have been quite a treat.  It helps us continue the day energized with post workout euphoria!  So, instead of holding our pinky up whilst sipping tea cups, we grasp our thumbs via hook grip whilst cleaning, jerking and snatching.  We also do not refrain from making gauche noises while going heavy.

History of the Afternoon Tea Party

"While drinking tea as a fashionable event is credited to Catharine of Braganza, the actual taking of tea in the afternoon developed into a new social event some time in the late 1830’s and early 1840’s. Jane Austen hints of afternoon tea as early as 1804 in an unfinished novel. It is said that the afternoon tea tradition was established by Anne, Duchess of Bedford. She requested that light sandwiches be brought to her in the late afternoon because she had a “sinking feeling” during that time because of the long gap between meals. She began to invite others to join her and thus became the tradition."
