Introduction
When Antiques Roadshow expert Eric Knowles discovered Hazle Ceramics, he knew this building from having eaten there! Anna Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, is said to have made tea into an afternoon meal circa 1840.

 The double gabled Vickers Hotel is made of 1500s Cotswolds stone. At 7 Market Place, it does serve teas! Charming Woodstock is near the vast Blenheim Palace, a major tourist site.

 The British “cream tea” with freshly baked scones and strawberry jam may be from Devon, Marilyn’s home county. Jam or clotted cream first is hotly debated... Butter before jam, then cream, is also an option. Purists would prefer plain scones instead of the fruited ones seen above!

Twinings Tea
In 1706 Thomas Twining bought a coffee house at 216 Strand, London introducing tea to create the first known tearoom. In 1717 he opened a Golden Lyon shop here for tea and coffee. In 1787 his grandson built the doorhead with Chinese figures. In 1837 Queen Victoria granted the first of ongoing Royal Warrants, as above. Now a big tea supplier, this is the oldest family company still trading at their original site with a museum, shop and sampling Tea Bar.

 Much wisteria in Woodstock.

 Beautifully iced fancy cakes are ideal for afternoon tea. Sandwiches may also appear but many savoury items could turn it into high tea - or even a light supper!

 Twinings’ tea caddies for The Queen’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee.
