Crumpet and cream scones
On the left side of the plate is a single homemade crumpet that’s been toasted and served with a pat of whipped butter. Next to the crumpet is a pair of homemade cream scones that have been split and spread with strawberry jam and a dollop of ‘mock clotted cream’.
[The combination of hot tea and warm scones served along with clotted cream and jam (traditionally strawberry) is known as cream tea and originated from England. The method of how the cream tea is prepared and presented depends on the region.]
Beverage: Upton Tea’s ‘No.1 Tippy Orthodox GFOP Darjeeling' tea sweetened with sugar and a splash of milk.
