Tea time refers to the evening meal (also called dinner). Lunch here is usually just called 'Lunch' or sometimes for people that call their evening meal 'Tea Time' they call their lunch 'Dinner'. I have never called drinking Tea 'Tea Time' lol.

Depends where you are in the UK, people observe it a little differently. When I visited friends in Wales, tea time was at 4:00 p.m and they made tea and little sandwiches. It was great - a very civilized, relaxing moment.
