How did I not know there was a National Cream Tea Day! This is BIG news in my world. This year, The National Cream Tea Society are encouraging us to join along at home on 25 June 2021; they are even providing free cream tea-themed zoom backgrounds.
We at Simons thought we'd like to celebrate too and share a scone recipe from fellow Essex-based firm, Tiptree Jams (Wilkin & Sons), whose instantly recognisable labels can now be seen in tearooms and coffee shops around the world. They were very happy to share their scrumptious recipe with us, so save the date, put your best frilly pinny on and enjoy the ultimate English garden summer tradition.
