Is there a exact word like brunch to use for the meal between lunch and dinner.
Some people call it snacking.
I like to call it tea time.
British English - tea.
American English - afternoon snack.
The closest thing is Afternoon Tea.
Afternoon Tea was originally designed to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. The story goes that the Duchess of Bedford started it around 1840. She felt hungry at 4 in the afternoon.
It can be a very grand affair in some of the posh hotels in Britain. You can have Afternoon Tea at the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge for 33 GBP [US$66]
Separate names with a comma.
