Morning tea is a Commonwealth (particularly Australian) term for a light mid-morning meal intended as a break from working. It is called "Smoko" among tradespersons and labourers. It corresponds to the North American morning coffee break and the English elevenses.

Tea, coffee, cake and biscuits are typical fare. Labourers generally have something more substantive at smoko, such as cold meat and sandwiches.
