Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
Yes, Lizzie, there was nothing to beat going out for afternoon tea in some of those tearooms. From what I remember they were full of "mature ladies" sitting without their coats on - but still wearing their best hats!
The Tea pottery is a fantastic place! I've got a few of their teapots. I don't use them though.Walking round there was like a grotto. I went there many years ago when it was a very small concern, in Askrigg I think. It's huge now and based in Keswick.

I agree that crumpets have to be so well buttered that the butter runs out of the bottom when you bite them. (obviously much healthier because the fat "falls out" , a bit like the principle of broken biscuits "Leaching calories"!)They also need to be well toasted. I can't stand the white , cold things you are sometimes offered in cafes!
