If you find yourself wandering Truro in search of a cream tea, then wander no more.
We’ve taken a good while making sure we create the best possible cream tea for you.
Our scones are generous and always freshly baked each day using eggs from St Mawes hens and Rodda’s milk.
The jam is from The Cornish Larder, a lovely young couple, Abi & Jake, who started making Christmas presents for their family and have steadily grown it into a business that supplied jams for the G7 leaders’ breakfasts. Their strawberry jam is laced with Tarquin’s gin, another local success story. In our view, it’s quite simply the best jam there is.
The cream is, of course, Rodda’s - world-famous and made the same way since 1890. Exactly the right thickness to sit proudly atop the jam.
Finally the tea. We chose Fortnum & Mason, founded in 1707 in Piccadilly and purveyors of the world’s finest teas. We recommend the Darjeeling, “the champagne of teas”, harvested from the foothills of the Himalayas, making it one of the highest-grown teas, delivering a subtle taste that’s the perfect accompaniment to the cream tea.
