Could there be anything more British than afternoon tea? Now I know that there are all those reports that say our nation’s most popular dish is now curry and all that but seriously I still believe that afternoon tea could quite possibly be our most iconic nosh. In fact, leave our roast dinners and Yorkie puds to one side as the tourists indeed speak for themselves. The Americans queue for hours not to grab a roast spud or a lamb bhuna but to sample the delights of a good old British cream tea!
To be honest I have a very sweet tooth so it does not take much to twist my arm into the tempting world of cakes and chocolate. In fact, to make myself feel better for eating naughty treats I accompany them with having a cup of tea or coffee – which makes it, in my book, all ok to indulge!
