I am such a cliché of a Cornish person, but I do love pasties and a good cream tea. Even better if I can have one after the other – I have no idea why I have needed to diet recently honestly…. I also love working with local companies.
When my hamper arrived, I was very impressed with the presentation.
The cream was Rodda’s clotted cream of course, which is my favourite type of cream and the jam and tea bags were also Cornish. The scones were made over the Tamar in Devon according to the label, but the whole hamper was very local and west country based.
The cream arrived in a special package inside the hamper, with an ice pack inside to keep it cool during transit meaning it arrived very fresh.
You can order plain scones or fruit ones through Cornish Hampers, I received plain ones and they were delicious. Considering my diet, I was good and just ate the one scone and made Si’s parents’ day by popping the rest over to them for an afternoon treat.
The scone tasted really fresh, the jam was some of the best I have tasted and the cream was good as always. Just perfect really.
We have tried the Cornish tea before and both like it, so the tea bags were a welcome addition in the hamper. I love that the gift card that came with the hamper had an image of Cornwall on it, keeping the theme going from the rest of the hamper.
With Cornish Hampers you can also order a bigger cream tea hamper or one of their mixed Cornish food hampers which look ridiculously tasty. Such a perfect idea for a gift as well as for yourself to enjoy.
Friday 24th June is actually National Cream Tea Day, why not order a Cornish Cream Tea Hamper before then and join in on the day. Not that there ever needs to be an excuse for a cream tea, but obviously celebration calories don’t count at all. **sadly they so do, but I feel less naughty with an excuse**
Just remember – Jam First always ;)
