If you need a little caffeine paired with a tiny sandwich in the afternoon, you're not alone. Some of us need a break around 2 or 3 p.m. to enjoy a snack, relax, and sip a soothing cup of tea. It can be a sweet time to chat with friends over FaceTime who are taking a little pause from their day, too. It can also be a great op to snag some new content and post a pic with one of these Instagram captions for afternoon tea.

Let's be honest: Your spread is always immaculate, between the looseleaf tea bags, clotted cream, adorable jars of jam, and sweet delights. You may have a teapot that would make Pam from The Office or the characters of Netflix's Bridgerton proud. Tucked under your plate, you may even have some fancy napkins with flowers printed on them, too. It's an oversight to lay everything out on your kitchen counter or patio table, and not take a photo of cozy atmosphere you've created.

Not to mention, the photos you can take of your afternoon tea setup are endless. A few you may consider snapping include: a close-up of a lemon slice floating in your chai, an overhead shot of your table and your hand pouring the tea into your mug, an eye-level snap of your mug with your bright windows in the background, and a selfie with your biscuits and tea sandwiches galore. If one of your BFFs is tuning in to your afternoon tea via Zoom or FaceTime, you may even consider clinking your mugs to the screen for a candid shot, too.

For all of those pics you'll probably take, post them on IG with one of the following captions for afternoon tea. Not to be cheesy, but they're pretty tea-rrific.
