Afternoon tea is really popular at the moment so for some this is a good buy - I have a full set of Royal Albert china bought in the 70's - rarely used now though but do bring it out for special occasions.
It's not my style personally. But I can appreciate it. The Internet is older than you seem to think. The likes of the social media has just popularized it to the masses. Afternoon tea is a great British invention which can still be enjoyed (fortunately) at many hotels throughout the country but especially London and even in other countries such as Japan.
Mrs bucket is alive and well.😨
