In matches lasting only an afternoon, the tea interval is usually taken between innings, and is around 20 minutes.
We searched for Tea at The Laws of Cricket | MCC (lords.org) and the result was “nothing found” “seem’s your all out”. No surprise for Tea is not part of playing the game but is a tradition that goes back a long time
Cricket teas are a part of the fabric of a British summer – along with strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, or at least they use to be?
