Sugar and spice and everything nice are what little girls are supposedly made of, and they're also essential ingredients of a traditional afternoon tea. This English custom is a sweet and civilized way to entertain, and it breaks up the day in the nicest way. - 

It became widespread in the 1840s and credit is given to Anna, the Duchess of Bedford, Once she began sharing her delightful new habit with friends, it soon it progressed into a full-blown social event among the English aristocracy.

You can now enjoy that English custom at the Lobby Lounge of Marco Polo Davao every Tuesdays to Saturdays from 2:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon.
