Cream Tea by Post can Brighten even the
Rainiest of Days..
When it's raining and you can't go outside, you can often feel a little down and living here in the UK, it does rain a lot meaning we have to look for alternative ways to brighten up our days. I'm a huge foodie and love my sweet treats. One of my favourite afternoon treats has got to be a good scone smothered in fresh cream and strawberry jam. Having 3 children means I don't go out for Afternoon Tea as much as I would like to so lately I've been ordering it in instead. Cream scones are my biggest guilty pleasure, so much so that I hide them away and devour them once the kids are all tucked up in bed like I did last night.
Yesterday I received a lovely little Cream Tea Hamper in the post from Devon Heaven Hampers who are a lovely company based in Devon themselves. All their ingredients are sourced locally to give their customers that proper Devon Cream Tea experience.
Their Scones are made by an expert local chef Richard Hunt and his partner Claire of the Devon Scone Company and their Jam is also produced by the Devon Scone Company using local grade 1 strawberries which received a Taste of the West Gold Award in 2014. Last but not least their thick Devonshire clotted cream is provided by Langage Farm and traditionally made from a herd of Jersey and Guernsey cows.
The Cream Tea - Large Scones & Extra Cream Hamper contains:
- 4 Devon scones.
- 2 x 113g Langage Farm clotted cream.
- 220g strawberry jam.
- 2 Devonshire Tea tea bags.
- Personalised gift card - enter personal message in the box at the bottom of the checkout page.
- Gift wrapped wicker basket.
The hamper comes well wrapped inside a lovely little wicker basket and presented really well. It would make a really nice gift for anyone who loves their Cream Teas as much as I do. I had planned on sharing with my Mum who also loves Cream Tea but I got a little distracted last night and couldn't resist opening it to give it a taste. Don't get me wrong, I'm not all bad. I will be taking the rest of the hamper round to my Mums later today to share the rest, I only tucked into one of the scones and a little bit of jam and cream, promise.
The scones are a good size, they are large just like the label says they are so there's no need to worry about not getting what you're promised and with 4 of them to enjoy, there's plenty to go round. You also get a beautiful jar of strawberry preserve and two generously sized pots of clotted cream. Served with a nice cup of Devonshire Tea, what's not to enjoy.
I really enjoyed my fruit scone last night, the scones were very fresh and soft. Topped with a layer of jam and then cream (as I'm a Jam first kinda girl) they tasted deliciously good.
I was very happy with the taste. Everything was fresh and tasty and very moreish.
I've tried a lot of scones and have to say that the Devonshire Heaven Hampers scones are very good. The clotted cream was so rich and creamy, it was so good and their jam was super sweet with chunks of fresh strawberries inside. The whole Cream Tea experience was one of pure joy. I've never felt so naughty eating a scone all to myself but it was fab.
The Devonshire Heaven Hampers company have lots of Cream Tea hampers to choose from so if this one doesn't tickle your fancy like it did mine. You can pop on over to their website and find another one that does, there's lots to choose from over there.
I loved my Cream Tea hamper and have to say, it was delicious.
It gets a firm thumbs up from me here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries.
