So she researched and researched and asked around and finally came to Brown's Hotel. And it was awesome. How awesome? This awesome.
They had sleeves for the sweetener packets. I mean really, jackets required for patrons? No. Jackets for sweetener packets? Oh yeah. Nobody wants to look at the little pink packets, so let's class it up. Nice.
And very tasty, though my mother does slice her bread thinner.
Cakes? Oh, yeah.
Also very tasty. I'm not saying I would buy any of the cakes from the local shop, but as far as Afternoon Tea goes, they were far and away the best I've had.
But now we get to the important part.
Here's the thing, I'm not a scone person. I don't jams and jellies and cream? Be it clotted or whipped, really not my thing. Well until Brown's that was true. These scones were fantastic. (do you see a certain someone eyeballing the scones in the background?)
And the cream? The smoothest richest clotted cream I have ever had. Magnificent.
So everything at Brown's was delicious. The assortment of teas was amazing. She had the whole rosebuds and I had a fantastic tea from Cornwall famous for, oh I'll let them explain it.
Cornish Grown Tea
Cornwall has finally created the first true english tea, grown on home soil at tregothnan tea plantation near truro. this fine blend of cornish and assam leaves gives a unique breakfast style tea, suitable any time of the day.
Light, graceful, stealthy notes of sweet-edged rose within a refreshingly light, leafy liquor and perfumed, languid aftertaste.
Let me summarize. Everything was fantastic.
She was very happy. As was I. And did I mention it was ALL YOU CAN EAT??? Insane! They kept offering more scones and more sandwiches and more cakes and more sandwiches!!! We had to postpone dinner.
