Every afternoon at Linderhof
(that I'm home)
I stop at half past three
And have a cup of tea
A longstanding tradition at Linderhof
But one we continued when we lived in England that Spring
A high tea at our cottage in Wiltshire
We'd call it supper but to the Brits it's tea
Meat pies, crumpets and a cake
With a pot of tea, of course!
We visited the little village of Winchcomb at tea time
And had one of the tallest scones!
A fruit one (with currants)
And of course, our pot of tea
Oxford was close by and we went several times
One of the highlights was the Hogwarts Dining Room
(which is really the dining room of King's College)
and after what seemed like miles of walking around Oxford
we stopped for tea
A cream tea -- scones, cream and jam
We lived most of that spring in the Cotswolds
And we passed through the quaint named Cotswolds towns often
A favorite Moreton-On-Marsh
had a great tearoom.
Another cream tea.
Kenilworth is a fascinating ruin of a castle
But it has a tea room!
And after the grand tour of the ruins of Kenilworth
we stopped for tea and cake.
Near our village was the village of Great Tew
and their church one Sunday had a fundraising tea and organ recital
A wonderful array of tea goodies
And real tea served in real cups
in the 1000 year old church
And who can visit London and not have a Hotel Tea?
Ours was at the Waldorf where we stayed
A curate filled with tea goodies and pots and pots of tea
On our first trip to England, we visited Bath and had tea in the Pump Room
A memorable experience.
This trip we were once again in Bath
And back to the Pump Room
Tea this day consisted of a "Bath Bun"
instead of the full afternoon tea.
Our house, Blue Row, was in the Cotswold village of Swerford
After a day sightseeing, we often made it home in time for afternoon tea
As much as I liked our tea room teas, I really liked our Blue Row teas the best!
A lavender tea in the garden
Lavender scones, lavender jam and an Earl Grey with a hint of lavender!
A full afternoon tea
with sandwiches, cakes and scones
And we invited a friend
A friend who also lived in the village
whom we met at the tea at Great Tew
It was fun to entertain at Blue Row!
A cream tea at Blue Row
scones, cream and jam
Just the two of us!
We'd been to Banbury but alas, we didn't buy any Banbury buns
But we did buy Eccles cakes
And that made for a great tea that afternoon!
Teatime is a great time -- whether we're in England or at home at Linderhof
It was fun to share my real English teas with you
and with The Tablescaper for
Oh, The Places I've Been
