RETURN: 5:00 PM
For most of us, Christmas is the highlight of our holiday season. It really is about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, the joy of first snow, friends, family, and our deeply rooted religious customs. This is really a favorite time of year for everybody. So, get in the holiday spirit, and join us! Our day will start with a little shopping – time for that last-minute gift, a Christmas treasure to finish decorating the tree, or perhaps a little something to wear to one of your holiday parties.
Afterward, we’ll drive to Amherst where the employees at the Inn (formerly the Lord Jeffrey Amherst Inn) will welcome us with open arms. Help us to celebrate the season by attending our Christmas Tea in the very best British tradition. Often called ‘high tea’, our menu will allow us to select from a half dozen types of tea, homemade scones, sliced pumpkin bread, a variety of savory tea sandwiches, and holiday desserts created especially for us by the Inn’s talented pastry chef. See your complete menu below. You’ll also be serenaded by a professional harpist for the ultimate teatime experience.
Your trip includes deluxe motor coach transportation from Lizak Bus Service in Warren, a short shopping trip in the morning, and high tea at the Inn on Boltwood. For further information call or email Randall. To hold your space for this limited seating event, please send your payment of $89.00 per person at your earliest opportunity. Seating is limited, and tickets are available on a first come/first served basis. Please make checks payable to: Adventure Tours of Warren. We hope you will join us in celebrating the Yuletide season in high style!
So, what’s the difference? Devon vs. Cornish Cream Tea
The tradition of eating bread with cream and jam began at Devon’s Tavistock Abbey in the 11th century. Thus, Devonshire Cream Teas have been made with cream on bottom and jam on top ever since. This version is disputed by the Cornish who claim that the only way to serve cream tea is with the cream on top. Historically, a Cornish split was used in Cornwall in place of a scone; this is a slightly sweet white bread roll. But, today scones and clotted cream with jam are used in tearooms throughout both counties. The main difference is how you like to do it yourself. Which do you think is best?
