Ah; this fixes my perception of the what and why of Tea. My impression of it had been as sort of a mid-to-late afternoon snacktime, of sorts, rather than a standalone meal in its own right.

It's them there Victorians....
They had at least five or six meals a day.
(At least the upper and middle classes did)

Yeah... little ones. So they could still fit in the impossibly tiny-waisted corsets! :)

Why do you think they had such huge bustles?
In reality, there were very few who had 'tiny' waists.


A Victorina dinner would have between 6 and 9 courses, a supper, at least 4 and their breakfasts were often 'buffet' style, with goodness knows how many dishes....
