Grantchester: Tea in the Orchard
It was a lovely cool and cloudy day in England, so we walked through the public meadows to get to Grantchester (took around 50 minutes).
The teashop itself was small; most of the seating consisted of lawn chairs scattered around the orchard. It was also full of local families and groups of friends enjoying their Sunday afternoon, in fact we were the most tourist-y people there. A terrific first tea experience!

Day long and watch the Cambridge sky,
And, flower-lulled in sleepy grass,
Hear the cool lapse of hours pass." -Robert Brooke
*A note on Scones:
English scones are soft, with a close and crumby texture, very similar to American biscuits**.
** A note on Biscuits:
English biscuits are dry and crumbly things, very similar to American cookies.
I know, none of it makes sense.
