National Cream Tea Day is observed on the last Friday of June, which this year falls on June 30. National Cream Tea Day was established by Rodda’s Clotted Cream and Tiptree. The afternoon cream tea is a 19th-century British custom that was practised daily. Today is National Cream Tea Day, which encourages people to join together, enjoy a cream tea, and donate to worthy causes.

The background of Cream Tea Day

The enjoyment of sipping tea dates back to the 1600s, when tea was first introduced to Britain during the reign of King Charles II. However, the Duchess of Bedford established the custom of eating pastries or sandwiches between lunch and supper many years later. When she felt hungry during the afternoon, she would order tea and refreshments to her room.

During the middle of the 19th century, tea’s prevalence increased, and drinking tea in the afternoon became a custom among the British populace. A cup of tea was served with sandwiches, cakes, scones, cream, and jam (the first indication of cream teas as we know them today). Now, cream tea is not only a part of daily custom, but also of social gatherings and lawn celebrations. It frequently accompanies a small snack served to family or visitors.

The Cream Tea Society, comprised of Tiptree and Rodda’s Clotted Cream, is a community for those who adore all things cream tea. Rodda’s and Tiptree have historically donated up to 50,000 portions of Cornish clotted cream and marmalade to charity event organisers each year. The Society supported 57 charitable events on National Cream Tea Day last year. They enjoy encouraging individuals to raise funds for their preferred charities.
