Mid-Afternoon Snack

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki

One of the Unseen University Mealtimes, referenced by Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully in The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch. No evidence has yet been gleaned as to whether this is different to, or the same thing as, the Afternoon Tea referenced in Sourcery, where the then Bursar, Spelter, offers Rincewind a sherry to steady his nerves. It is of course possible, as a long time separates both books, that at the time of Sourcery, the University's eating and drinking cycle was still evolving into the magnificently complex and baroque thing it has become by The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch and Unseen Academicals..
