Mariota Says: The English prefer milk or cream in their tea, while most Americans prefer lemon. I have an English grandmother who taught me to appreciate both methods of service.

This recipe is very English in origin so it contains milk instead of the lemon most of us are more accustomed to. It is an odd little recipe, and the first time I made it I thought it would be fine for my personal consumption, but probably not worthy of sharing. Then friends and family members got a taste of it, and begged for the recipe. It tastes a little strange at first, certainly exotic, and then it grows on you, eventually becoming an addiction of almost shameful proportions. I recommend you make half the recipe the first time to give it a try, and then see if it casts it's spell upon you, demanding you prepare it in every growing quantities.

Makes an excellent gift for the holidays.
