Don’t get high tea confused with low tea. Low tea is taken around 3pm, in armchairs with low tables. High tea is a meal taken around 6pm of meat and potatoes and hot tea. It was enjoyed mostly by farm hands, although the aristocracy would usually take high-tea on Sundays to allow their staff time off for church.
