My favorite thing in this article is the explanation of the distinction between high and low tea. I will definitely use this article next time I take students to Oxford and will perhaps give extra points for participation in both a high and a low tea.
I'm sorry that the recipes are all in UK measurements. They look quite old fashioned and complicated, just the sort of thing to make a huge mess in the kitchen, which i secretly like doing. I have not yet tried any of them out, but when I do I will write a post about it and include pictures of my creations.I may try some of them out on my next group of Oxford students. I stole the photo below from food.com. It is a photo of Mrs. Beeton's Seed Cake. Mine, when I make it, will be much less artful.
