Not every afternoon when we are out and about for often we have a late and large lunch but when we don't, we tend to look for a sign like this as we go through villages in our travels.
And what a clever name!!!!!
And what a charming shop
And what did we order?
The only thing one goes to a tea room for -- an English Cream tea or in this case a "Cotswold Cream Tea"
Pots of tea, scones and real clotted cream and strawberry jam
It's the perfect thing when you're feeling peckish at half past three or thereabouts!
Eaten properly with cream on scone and then jam on top.
(When we first made a trip to England, we were uneducated and our first cream tea had the jam on the scone and then piles of the clotted cream on top of that!!!)
We'll fondly remember Mrs. T. Potts and may return to Moreton-in-Marsh for another cream tea before we head back home!
It's Tuesday and there is nothing better than sharing afternoon tea, thus, I'm joining the following tea parties today:
