The Quiz: How do you serve a Cornish cream tea?
A Both mixed together in a bowl
B Cream on first, then jam
C Jam on first, then cream
In Cornwall, you split a warm scone and spread the jam on first, then add the clotted cream. In neighbouring Devon, it’s the other way around. All washed down with a nice cup of tea. And in case you think nobody really cares, they do. In 2018 the National Trust apologised after featuring a picture of a Devon-style scone in an advert for one of its Cornish properties.
The correct answer to this quiz is Jam on first, then cream.
