I thought I would repost this today. Now summer is approaching, National Trust properties are open again and their restaurants are famous for their afternoon teas. 🍰☕️
Whether it’s high tea or afternoon tea, tea time in Britain is still a tradition and going out for the day is not complete without a stop for tea. Of course many opt for a cream tea, which originated in the West Country and has become a staple everywhere, others enjoy a pot of tea and a piece of cake. A full afternoon tea though will include tiny sandwiches along with the scones, cake and tea. Remember tea will come in a pot, sometimes even with a tea strainer and a tea cost. My pics today include a table laid for tea at Baddesley Clinton, Teddy Bears Picnic at Stourhead, Wiltshire, an antique tea cup and saucer, a table laid for dinner at Charlecote Park and afternoon tea at Harrods, London.
Fun Fact: 165 million cups of tea are drink in Britain every day! That’s a staggering 60.2 billion cups a year!
Extra Fun Tip: A unique afternoon tea experience can be had at one of the many National Trust restaurants which feature regional specialities such as West Country Apple Cake or Bara Brith from Wales…the choice really is endless…
