I am fairly sure that the expression "high tea" does not occur in the books - I doubt if Susan would know what it was.

I agree- I can't remember "High tea" appearing anywhere in the books. But I think Susan would have known what it was. My upbringing was strictly middle class, and immediately after the war, so in the '40s, I knew what "high tea" was, although in my family, we had "tea" and "supper".
