What could possibly be more British than enjoying some cream tea on a Saturday afternoon?
A combination of scones, jam (Duerr’s of course!) and clotted cream with a lovely warm mug of tea, is enough to brighten any dreary afternoon.
Like the Cornish pasty is from Cornwall, the Lancashire Hot Pot is from Lancashire, the Cream Tea is traditional to the South West of England. With some folk going as far as saying for it to be a true cream tea, it can only be sampled in the Westcountry.
However, the real nationwide debate is, jam or cream first?
