Looking forward to refreshing ourselves while touring in town by stopping for cream tea. As I understand one gets one selection to accompany the pot/cup of tea, what pastry could we choose? Chelsea buns, maids of honor, victoria sponge, dundee cake, others?? Would appreciate suggestions for things we are not so likely to find in the States. As we are touring both in Stratford upon Avon and London are there specialties that are well-loved favorites we should order if offered? Our public television station ran the Great British Bake Off series this winter and we'd be happy to sample just a fraction of what was in the oven.
And finally, would we be normally be ordering our cream tea from a table menu or at the counter?
