Tea for you and me

Join me on my epic quest to find the best tea ever

All hail Mary Berry

Mary Berry is one of the best cookery writers and I’ve been using her recipes to make cakes for years. Her Baking Bible is definitely one to buy if you like baking and includes instructions for making scones and sandwiches in bulk for when you’re serving afternoon tea. I’ve never served afternoon tea, but it’s reassuring to know that when I need to I can follow the recipes she has laid down for me. I find that not many people have heard of her but this could all be about to change as she will be on BBC2 at 8pm tonight!

The Great British Bake Off is like the X-factor for baking, with home bakers competing to impress the judges. The judges are Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. Last week the contestants made biscuits and treats suitable for afternoon tea. Here‘s an interview with Mary Berry about being a judge.

She also has a range of dressings and just to celebrate the Mary Berry-ness of the day, R will be cooking chicken with her All Seasons Sauce this evening. All hail Mary Berry!

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
