Afternoon Tea

Enjoy a traditional afternoon tea, served in the surroundings of our beautiful Palm Court Lounge.

The tradition of afternoon tea was introduced by Anna Marie, 7th Duchess of Bedford in England around 1840.

It was not unusual for people to have only breakfast and dinner at this time and the Duchess found herself complaining of a mid afternoon hunger. She requested tea and a light snack, which soon became a regular occurrence as she invited friends to join her. Before long other socialites started hosting afternoon tea and it became the tradition we celebrate today.

Now it is more likely to be enjoyed a special treat for a birthday or a catch up with friends, afternoon tea is served in luxury hotels all over the world. The newly refurbished setting of our stunning Palm Court Lounge is the perfect place to enjoy this indulgent afternoon treat while in Valletta.

Afternoon Tea is served every day from 3pm until 6pm. To make a reservation, call us on +356 2122 5241 or email dine@phoeniciamalta.com
