Friend Barbara and I both have birthdays in December
What better way to celebrate than with
An Afternoon Tea
My very favorite tea room in
all of the Kansas City area
(And I've had tea at a lot of places in the city!)
It's not a tea room but a bakery . . . and cafe
But it serves the best, the absolute best
English Afternoon Tea
(perhaps the reason is that the owner is British!)
A pot of tea, and a curate full of food
The savories -- sandwiches
cucumber (of course) and curried chicken
real British sausage rolls
And a little rolled vegetable sandwich that is my favorite
(Perhaps Jill would share the recipe?)
And the scones and sweets
And real Devonshire cream and strawberry jam!
A plate of sandwiches
(we got two of each)
And a scone with real Devonshire cream and strawberry jam
(no "faux" cream here but the real deal!)
And the scone is a real British one
Round and light and fluffy
Not triangle and dried and full of strange dried fruit
I've taken tea a lot of places
In America and in England
Clock Tower Bakery does a real Afternoon Tea
just like many places that we took tea at
when we lived in England.
If I lived in the city, I would go there for afternoon tea
at least once a month
And they also do a cream tea --
scones with cream and jam and a pot of tea --
That I would do weekly!
Sigh, sometimes there is a downside to living in Fort Scott!
Downtown Overland Park, Kansas
It is the place to go for tea in the city!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my birthday tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage.
