Afternoon tea – how do you eat yours?

When we were in Rye (yeah, I’m still going on about that) we decided that once the Royal baby arrived we would ‘celebrate’ with a traditional cream tea. For some reason we needed an excuse and that was the most apt reason we could come up with.

The baby didn’t arrive during our time in Rye. So on our last afternoon we tucked into scones, jam and clotted cream for no other reason than we really wanted to. On doing so we questioned the proper way to prepare a scone: is it the cream or the jam that goes on the scone first?

Help me out – how do you eat yours?!

    I went to The Berkeley for afternoon tea in December and absolutely loved it! Such a treat!
    I’m hoping to go to Bea’s of Bloomsbury next! What do you think of that one?
    Keep in touch!

      I’d like to go there too – actually haven’t been! I think it’s fairly reasonable for a London afternoon tea too which is great :)
