When did Afternoon Tea become a thing?

The Duchess of Bedford introduced the wonderful idea of Afternoon Tea in 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around 4pm so she often asked for a tray of tea, bread and butter, and cake to be brought to her in the Drawing Room. This became a habit of hers and she soon began asking friends to join her.  A "pause for tea" soon became a fashionable social event. During the 1880s, society women would change into long gowns, gloves and ornate hats for their afternoon tea, which was served between 3pm-5pm.
