Good stuff – Cream tea

Hi,
here comes another regular category – Good stuff. As the name suggests, it will be about good things – good things I found in the UK. Sometimes they might not originate in Britain, but I’ve seen/tried/ate/experienced them the first time here.

Starting with:

CREAM TEA

Awesome! I discovered this delicious treat only recently. Well, kind of recently. Thanks to my boyfriend, about 2-3 years ago. I was truly ignorant to this traditional English, or to be more specific – Cornish – afternoon refreshment before that. The Wikipedia says about Cream tea this:

‘A cream tea (also known as a Devonshire tea, Devon cream tea or Cornish cream tea) is tea taken with a combination of scones, clotted cream, and jam.Cream teas are offered for sale in tea rooms throughout the United Kingdom (especially South West England) and the rest of the Commonwealth, or wherever someone wants to give an impression of British influence.’

I must add this: it tastes the best, if enjoyed after a long trek in the countryside, especially if walking in fresh, crisp and windy weather, admiring the beauty of English green hills, lakes or if you are really lucky, the seaside with stunning coastal views! The pleasure you experience then, when tired out, you sit down to hot cup of tea and delicious scones in a nice cosy tea room! The moment, when you slice the scone in half and heap the clotted cream and jam on it…Ah, the combination is just perfect!

Ahoj lidi,

zaciname dalsi rubriku – Good stuff = Dobre veci. Jak jiz nazev napovida, budu zde psat o vsem dobrem, co jsem v Britanii objevila. Obcas mozna nebudou tyhle veci pochazet primo z Anglie, ale poprve jsem je videla/vyzkousela/ochutnala/zazila prave tady.

Zaciname s:

Cream tea – v prekladu Krem caj.

Uzasne! Tuhle dobrotu jsem objevila teprve nedavno. Tedy relativne nedavno. Diky memu priteli asi pred dvema az tremi roky. Do te doby jsem nemela ani zdani o tom, co tohle tradicni anglicke, nebo abych byla presnejsi cornwallske, odpoledni obcerstveni je. Wikipedia rika o Cream tea tohle:

creamtea2

Cream tea (take znamy jako Devonshire tea, Devon cream tea nebo Cornish cream tea) je caj podavany s kombinaci kolacku ‘scones’, hustym kremem zvanym ‘clotted cream’ a marmeladou. Cream tea se prodava v cajovnach ve Velke Britanii (predevsim v jihozapadni Anglii) a v dalsich castech Britskeho kralovstvi, nebo vsude, kde chce nekdo pusobit dojmem britskeho vlivu.

Ja musim dodat tohle: nejvetsi pozitek prinasi vychutnavan po dlouhe prochazce britskou krajinou. Obzvlaste pokud se prochazite v cerstvem, svezim a vetrnem pocasi, obdivujete krasu anglickych zelenych kopecku, uzasnych jezer anebo, pokud mate stesti, pobrezi se strhujicim vyhledem z utesu.

To blaho, ktere zazijete, kdyz se prijemne unaveni usadite v utulne cajovne, s salkem horkeho napoje a lahodnym kolackem scone. Ta chvile, kdy rozriznete kolacek napric a na kazdou pulku nandate bohatou vrstvu kremu a marmelady… Ah, kombinace proste dokonala.
