A Craving For …

Cornwall 361
… Cornish cream tea.
When it comes to food, Cornwall is famous for two things: pasties (more about those some other time) and cream teas.
Cream teas consist of a cup of tea served with scones, strawberry jam and thick, buttery, golden Cornish cream. It’s the epitome of decadence but well worth the hundreds of calories per mouthful.

We found a lovely restaurant in Mousehole serving cream tea – the best we had on our trip. And I absolutely loved the décor – the clean lines, the vintage touches and the simple white roses. Bliss!

But I need to let you in on a little secret – I don’t like tea. So I had … let’s call it a cream coffee, instead. It was perfect.

  6. we used to call it clotted cream when we lived in england - you can't get anything like it in the states. thanks for bringing back some delicious memories~

  9. When I visited London a few years ago, my friend drove me down to Brighton, and I had the most heavenly cream tea at a place called the Mock Turtle. It was the first time I had ever had cream tea, and I'll never forget it.
