Here I stand in the gardens of The Orangery in London back in August . My husband and I had a delightful afternoon of tea, champagne, sweets, and walking the gardens, but honestly, my most cherished memory of tea was experienced in Bath a year prior to our afternoon of high tea. I was on a day tour of Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge, and while walking around our second stop, it really started to pour so I ducked in to this little lunch place that serves tea in the afternoon. I asked if they were still serving lunch, the answer was no - only tea (it was about 4:30) so I ordered tea and scones. I have never really cared for scones here in the States.  They always seemed so dry, but I thought I would give it a try and boy was I pleasantly surprised! They scones were so delicious, moist, and served with clotted cream and homemade jam. I was in heaven....the rain, warm cup of tea, and the most tasty snack I have ever experienced .

Two years later, I finally decided to make them myself, and I am very happy with the results! So as the cooler season starts to set in, I can't think of a better way to spend my afternoon then recreating my cozy afternoon in Bath.
I was very happy with the recipe I found at About Food. It was easy and only took about 30 mins to make and scones were moist and very buttery. I served my scones with Double Cream, which I found at Cost Plus World Market and a high quality jam.
