Holiday Tea Sandwiches

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.

Scones, Clotted Cream, and Jam - Perfect!

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.

Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o'clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o'clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.

Do you Really Get Cream on your Nose When Having a Cornish Cream Tea?
Do you Really Get Cream on your Nose When Having a Cornish Cream Tea?

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?
