From the New York Times:
“In my home country of Chile, having afternoon tea together with friends and family is a cherished ritual. The custom is about far more than just tea: It’s a time to catch up with loved ones and share experiences both seismic and mundane. As time goes on, teatime and the conversations it fuels can become the glue that holds relationships together.
“I have witnessed this ritual since my childhood, watching my grandmother gather with her friends once a month for tea and pastries at 5 p.m., as they have done for the last 60 years.”
