I got to go out for high tea last weekend with a couple of friends. It was great, and it’s been forever! I got the black current tea with the queen’s tea, which included pear and Stilton and egg and onion sandwiches, a scone with preserves and Devon cream, a crumpet with lemon curd, a petit four, a shortbread cookie, fruit and salad. The scone was amazing, and that’s something because I’m very picky about scones! My friend ordered this tea and I liked it so much I picked some up to take home.
This tea is sweet and nutty and delicious. I’m not really sure it is representative of chestnuts, but I don’t care, because it’s yummy! Very affordable too. It doesn’t need cream and sugar, but takes them nicely. It actually reminds me a lot of Butiki’s praline horizon, but it’s not a CTC. If you’re ever in Pacifica, CA, check this place out!
