It's National Cream Tea Week

National Cream Tea Week is an initiative launched by the RABI (Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution).  Click here for the link to the official National Cream Tea Week page.
These are a few photos of one of the many cream teas we enjoyed on our 2008 trip to Britain. 
I would love to be there this week for the Cream Tea Celebration.

In the above photos, Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream, only available in the UK.

Oooh, I could take a break right now and have some clotted cream with scones that I have in the freezer. Not as good as fresh, but as I am alone, I do keep some for later! Thanks for sharing-and I could pack right now and we could both go for tea in GB! ♥♫

You always have the best looking food (and tea) on your blog. I never log off without my tummy protesting.

This is a holiday I've never heard of, but I quite approve!!

I SO look forward to all your adventures, especially when teacups are involved.

Hello, just to say I have really enjoyed your site for a while now and when I was originally researching afternoon tea sites over a year ago, I was amazed by the USA following. You will be glad to know that a friend of mine has reopened her tearooms in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire so there are more for you to come back to! I particularly like the photographs of your research. Best wishes Pauline
