Afternoon tea strawberries Wedgwood China.

An afternoon treat: English Strawberries & cream with a pot of Tea

Feeling fiercely patriotic, we are having the best of our English strawberries, local organic cream (full fat, bought from the market) and a pot of afternoon tea. A Cup of English afternoon tea – with milk.
Hope everyone who voted for Brexit is doing all they can to support our English & Welsh farms. I also hope they do not mind the tumbling value of our great British pound and all the cancelled holidays, due to failing operators… We ve got to make the best of it right?

It’s been a while since we ve had a decent afternoon tea so here to it today! Here is to you Theresa May and we have high hopes for you – rescuing us from our own stupidity. And I totally forgive you for not appointing me to the foreign office and going for Boris Johnson instead. (even though I am infinitely more charming, less offensive and speak French with a better accent.)

Meanwhile just when we thought things could not possibly, get any worse, there are the Nice atrocities to deal with, as well as a coup d’etat in Turkey.

So- I wish you well  – this blog gets support from delightful readers who live all over the world,  and we wish to restore sanity and compassion for us all…

There are few things I enjoy more: strawberries in season, with real cream. A dash of Demerara sugar, all beautifully presented in Wedgwood China! Come round for tea, dear readers and don't forget to help with saving the wild elephant...

    Lovely! Looks yummy, hope you are enjoying. Our strawberries are already gone 😳, it was too quick. So sorry for all the troublesome issues on your side of the pond, (of course, we have plenty too). Hugs and kisses to Lady Beatrice and LSH!

        Sadly, no. The deer ate them all! But we do have many growers here, including organically. We had a warm spring and the berries came early and were gone in a flash!

        Organic berries are so amazing- and hard to find. They are so healthy, vitamin c and phytonutrients and all the rest. And of course let’s not forget delicious. I am very sorry about the news from Louisiana, hope the world calms down soon…

      Your outing sounds delightful! I love English strawberries – even though you can buy them all year round, (pretty much) they taste completely different when they are in season. Thank you for the kind comment. 😃

    🙂 Oh, this looks most delicious. I wouldn’t mind eating them either.
    But I prefer the tea without cream. Somehow I just can’t get used to “white” tea.
    A very HAPPY weekend to you 🙂

      Wedgwood have a range of white with gold rim and very beautiful shapes. Of course you can always buy second hand, quite inexpensive as for some inexplicable reason people no longer want to keep good China. I guess no one has space for that sort of thing anymore.

        You are tempting me with beautiful things that are available in England ! Not fair ! I made up my mind. Next time I am in London, I will purchase an umbrella, have ‘high tea’, visit Bond st and Saville Row.
