The term "Cream Tea" is often incorrectly used,
as it was in something I read this week.
Cream Tea is a form of afternoon tea consisting of a pot of tea served with
scones, clotted cream, and jam. Cream teas are served every day in British tea rooms.
The term "cream" refers to clotted cream, or Devonshire Cream on scones, and
not to cream in your cup of tea.
(Milk may be added to a cup of tea, and not cream
because cream is too rich.)

We have been known to visit 21 tea rooms on a 17-day visit.
