Afternoon tea consists of English Breakfast Tea or Earl Grey usually sweetened with sugar and perhaps milk or lemon but not both.
You can expect finger sandwiches like cucumbers, egg and rocket, sardines and cheese. Its best to try them before you say you don't like them, Jane persuaded me to like a cucumber sandwich :)
Then you have scones with cream and jam and other cakes but you should finish what you have in front of you before moving on.
In the local area, you have some really good tea rooms which would be great for an afternoon out with the girls:
- Auntie's Tea Shop- Cambridge (very child friendly!)
- Harriet's Tearoom-Bury St Edmund and Cambridge
- Nancy's Teashop- Newmarket
- Peacocks Tearoom- Ely
- Orchard Gardens- Grantchester (Cambridge)
