Pacific Resort Aitutaki Launches its Island Afternoon Tea

13-Jul-2012

Pacific Resort Aitutaki is proud to launch its Island Afternoon Tea this month. The custom of afternoon tea originated in England n the 1840s. However, changes in social customs and working hours mean that most 21st-century Britons will rarely take afternoon tea, if at all. Afternoon tea is a small snack typically enjoyed between 2pm and 5pm, however, in keeping with island time our Island Afternoon Tea is served between 3.00pm and 5.30pm. At Pacific Resort Aitutaki we invite you to take a moment to savour this age old tradition and enjoy our island interpretation of a colonial classic.
