Cream teas are very popular in tea rooms in Devon and Cornwall where cream teas originated from.
There is some evidence that cream teas were invented by monks in Tavistock at the turn of the century, who prepared them for workers rebuilding the town’s Benedictive Abbey.
They say that they proved so popular that monk’s continued to serve them to passing travellers after the construction was finished. Taken from ‘A Miscellany of Britain’ by Tom O’Meara.
The Village Kitchen are so in love with making different flavours of scones so we are putting a book together with our recipes and much more which we hope to have on sale before Christmas.
