tea time

devon england is famous for something called a cream tea which is tea served with scones, clotted cream and whole fruit jam.

it's served to you as separate parts and you begin the enjoyable experience of consumption by cutting and spreading and spooning and stirring and in this way you make the cream tea your own.

before you get one you imagine you'll eat it slowly, sipping tea between delightfully sweet mouthfuls and laughing with a british accent.

after you get one you are proud if you remember to chew.

mmmmmmm cream tea. we picked up the ingredients for this assemblage this morning so we could toast to england our first breakfast back.
