おやつ : mid-afternoon (around 3 o’clock) snack; afternoon refreshment; afternoon tea
How is there no translation for this word in english???? This word is a perfect alternative to the posh, British “afternoon tea”. As long as other people agree to jump onboard this bandwagon and start calling 3pm afternoon nibbles “おやつ”, then I think this could really work!! Attention Sweet tooth’s, comfort eaters and grannies, let’s join together and coin this perfect term from the Japanese. It even has a time allocation!!!
