Tea Time Memories — My First English Cream Tea

July 1995
Our first Cream Tea experience was at the Small Talk Tea Room in the beautiful village of Broadway located in the Cotswolds in England.  In the photo above, the Gledhill family, who had learned of my interest in afternoon tea, hosted GJ and me for our very first and most delightful Cream Tea. 

For those who may not be familiar with "cream tea", it is a pot of tea served with a Scone, Clotted Cream and Jam (usually strawberry). 
Thank you Gledhill family for teaching me about the English Cream Tea on tour first trip to the Britain with the Berea Festival Dancers.
The Cream Tea experience has been repeated numerous times on many trips to England after 1995.
What a delightful tea journey it is been!
