In common parlance: get some mates round to have a laugh, add some nourishment and sweet things they will compliment you on and tea to keep tongues moist and gossip flowing.

We're here to campaign for you to make the most of tea and cake. You could have a genteel soirée with doilies, cake forks, and napkins. A garden party at the height of summer, iced lemon tea with cucumber sandwiches and strawberries.
