National Cream Tea Day gives people around the globe the chance to celebrate cream tea. Share your stories and traditions with cream tea lovers. British cream tea is a rich, delicious blend of creams and jams. These afternoon snacks were used to fuel the stomach until dinner.

Afternoon teas are a popular choice for those who want to share a special treat with loved ones. Special afternoon tea menus are available at many cafes and restaurants in the UK. You can also find themed afternoon teas, such as those inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland. These afternoon teas feature magical treats, including marshmallow mushrooms and fruity potion drinks.

Cream tea is, as its name implies, the star of any cream tea. Clotted cream is the main ingredient in cream tea. Clotted cream has a thick, creamy texture. Clotted cream is sometimes also called Devonshire cream because it comes from Devon.

It is made from raw, full-cream cow’s milk heated in a steam bath. If you are a resident of the United States, it is unlikely that you will be able experience real clotted milk unless you travel to the UK. This is due to the homogenization or pasteurization requirements which will change the structure of the fat in the milk.

It is controversial to debate whether the cream or jam should be applied first on scone. Two different parts of the UK are involved in this debate. The Devonshire cream tradition dictates that the cream should be added first to the scones, followed by the jam. Cornish tradition calls for spreading the jam first, then topping it with cream. Give them both a try and let us know what you think.

Cream tea is an afternoon light tea. It is served with scones and clotted cream. It is believed that cream tea originated at Tavistock Abbey, Devon in the 11th century. This was when the Devon tradition of eating bread with cream or jam arose. You can either eat scones or drink cream tea in one of two ways. The Devonian method is where you cut the scone into two and cover each one with clotted milk. Finally, add strawberry jam to the top.

Cornish is a method that involves a person taking a warm scone or bread split and splitting it in half. The strawberry jam is then spread on top and the scones are topped with a spoonful clotted cream. It’s all about the order you use, and how it is done.

The Cream Tea Society is a partnership with Rodda’s and Tiptree to host events across the United Kingdom.

The Cream Tea Society hosts tea parties and other events each year. They teach people English etiquette, how to properly eat scones, and how to drink tea. All proceeds from these events go to charity fundraising for organizations like children’s cancer research.

Learn how to make British Scones and Clotted Cream if you’re interested in celebrating this British holiday. The Tori Avey website has a Cornish recipe. Use fresh milk. Once it is strained, strain into shallow pans. It should be left to stand for at least 24 hours in winter, and 12 hours in the summer. Put the pan on the stove or in a steamer with water and heat it until the cream starts to form a raised edge.

Once the cream is cooked to your liking, transfer it to a cool dairy. Let sit for 12-24 hours. It is important to take care when moving the pans, so that the cream does not break. If necessary, skim the cream into layers and place it in a glass dish.
