I was at a conference at the British Library and during a break, fancied a proper cup of tea. What better place than at Fortnum’s? Well, so I confess, it was a little more than just a cup of tea. ( The proof is in the photo- only on scone left out of three! ) It was a pot, and scones with clotted cream! Oh dear, time to take the longer walk back to the library!
But before I pulled myself up from the seat, I started though to drool over the heavy tea-pot and wanted to buy one for myself. No luck, the shop didn’t sell them. Then the ones that I found on line? Oh dear…dear…I could have tea served to me every day for a year before it would pay for it! So for now…that tea pot will remain in service at Fortnum and Masons! I’ll just have to pop in more often! Maybe just for the tea! Well…maybe not…that clotted cream is to die for!
