Since we are all friends I have a confession to make…
…although we passed quite a few tea rooms while we were in England I only had tea once and it wasn’t in a tea room. Oye. I will show you all the lovely tea rooms that you can choose from if you travel to England.
This one was in Broadway in the Cotswolds.
Our daily timing was way off for stopping to enjoy a cup of tea in the afternoon. By then we were usually a bit warm and needed something cooler to drink.
Love the name of this one, Mrs. T. Potts…pretty clever. It was real close to Martha’s coffee house on the main street running through Moreton in Marsh.
On our way to Banbury we saw Mrs. Brown’s Tea room.
In Bourton on the Water there were a few tea rooms to choose from.
This restaurant/tearoom was less appealing than the Small Talk Tearoom above.
If we didn’t manage to walk right past a tearoom we enjoyed seeing signs for tearooms.
We got a little closer to a proper tea experience with these delicious scones and clotted cream but the drink of choice on this morning was coffee.
On one of our last days in England I decided it was high time to have some tea so as not to totally disappoint my tea drinking readers.
It wasn’t the finest of tea services in the bar of our hotel. The scones were no where near as nice as the ones we had in Hay on Wye.
This was my tea and tea experience. One hot and the other one cold. The cold one may or may not have had some alcohol in it. Most of our afternoon tea experiences looked more like this…
Not too light, not too dark, and it had to be ice cold.
Katie and Andrew are moving into their new apartment today. I’ve been cleaning off some furniture we had in the garage for them to use. As soon as I get the call that they are close to the apartment with the pod of their stuff I’m heading over to do what I can to help. I have 2 fans in the car because it’s warm today and their 4th floor apartment is not air conditioned. On most days here in the Western Washington area you can live comfortably without A/C. I don’t think we’ll be drinking tea this afternoon…
Happy Monday to you all!
