Afternoon Tea Blends usually contain Indian and Sri Lankan (Ceylon) teas, perhaps with some lighter Kenyan teas. Afternoon teas should be lighter teas that can be drunk without milk, or perhaps lightened with a drop of lemon. An alternative is to drink orthodox single estate teas from Darjeeling or Chinese regionals like Keemun.
