Teatime Downton Abbey Style

Scone Course

Teatime Downtown Abbey StyleA scone (rhymes with gone) is a Scottish quick bread that takes its name from the Stone of Scone, where Scottish kings were once crowned. Our miniature Currant Scones are delicious served with jam and clotted cream. Enjoy with a cup of Mark T.Wendell’s Young Hyson Green Tea.

  1. Although I have lived in the US for many years I was born in Ireland and grew up in England.
    The usual pattern followed for serving afternoon tea that I have always experienced in the United Kingdom is sandwiches first, then scones, then the cake course.
    I’m not sure why so often in the US the scones are served first.
    Does anyone have any idea how that came to be?
