Snack #3

Cream tea and scones, Queen's Lane, Oxford, UK

Our friend Nick suggested that we try a traditional English cream tea before leaving England.  It made for a great afternoon snack.  The tea was nice and warm.  The scones were pleasantly crisp on the outside and tender and crumbly on the inside with plump, juicy raisins.  The clotted cream was something we’ve never had before.  It was like butter mixed with whipped cream, and slightly sweet.  The jam tasted of fresh English strawberries.
