Food News for May (County Lines Online, May 2012)
"Another feature of the Devon's Country Fair I never miss is the Tea Sandwiches, recalling boarding school teas that first acquainted me with these elegantly carved pastry wedges embracing cream cheese or butter-bound vegetable, meat and seafood fillings. Daughter Jane and friends love these delicacies and after moving to Berwyn, we wanted to create a summer garden tea party for her birthday. A Taste of Britain, in Eagle Village Shops in Wayne, prepared exquisite tea sandwiches, scones, cookies, cake, lemon curd and jams for the occasion. All were perfection."

"Need a breather before heading to another shop? You can...relax with a cuppa from A Taste of Britain, where tea is the beverage of choice and shelves are well-stocked with Barry's, Lyons, Ribena and more."
"A British Easter brunch, once stuffy foods are updated, now hip and trendy" (Philadelphia Inquirer / Philly.com review by Ashley Primis, April 2012)
"Tasty English food has gone from an oxymoron to a driving culinary trend in this country...At A Taste of Britain in Wayne, owner Debbie Heth has filled her shelves with beloved chocolates, including malt and chocolate and Maltesers, and large 8- to 10-inch eggs filled with smaller Cadbury caramel eggs. There are also a lot of chocolate animals - no bunnies, Heth says, but the cows and chicls are cute as can be. "I was really surprised to learn what a big deal this candy is to our English customers," she says. "One of our servers, Sarah, grew up near Oxford, England. She said of course she has to buy some of this candy - her son needs to grow up with the right British traditions!"
"Afternoon High Tea at A Taste of Britain in Wayne, PA" (California Tea House review by Christine Tarlecki, March 2012)
"In my tea travels, I'm always looking for a great place for afternoon high tea. If you happen to be in Wayne, PA, I have found the perfect place: A Taste of Britain. Tucked away amongst cute shoppes off Route 30, this wide-planked, restful-rooms restaurant, with its soothing pale green walls, classy chandeliers and homey atmosphere, this truly is the place to have lunch, tea, or the full complement of tea and scones- the Afternoon High Tea...The entire experience was delicious, relaxing and soothing. The owner, Debbie Heth, was gracious and welcoming and knows her tea, as many, many customers came through the door all afternoon, seeking comfort and relaxation, as only a good tea can provide."
"One day last week, baker Terri Moss tweeted a photo of one of her creations, a delicious peach and cream scone. When I responded to Terri how good the scone looked, she invited me down to the tea shop, A Taste of Britain, to try one. I couldn't pass up the opportunity!
"...Terri explained they are primarily a tea shop, serving over fifty types of teas. "But people want scones with their tea." Terri listed out the assortment of scones she bakes: Buttermilk, Raisin, Lemon, Cherry Almond. They also carry Chocolate chip scones, a hit with the kids. Each month, they also offer a special scone. For July it's a Peaches and Cream scone. When Terri asked which I wanted to try, I had to go with the special. "Scones are similar to a biscuit," Terri explained. "We use six pounds of flour for one batch of scones. Authentic British scones are not as sweet as the scones you often find in chain shops. They are more dense than bread."

Food writer Clara Park sat down with Tara Buzan of A Taste of Britain for an interview just in time for the Royal Wedding. "With the Royal Wedding [here], it seems more than appropriate that this week's Meet the Chef/Owner comes from A Taste of Britain with Easy Elegance in Wayne. One step into this shop and you are transported to the UK. There are Cadbury chocolate bars, Royal china, a plethora of British teas, jams, scones and black and white photos of the Queen, her handsome prince and more. Tara Buzan is a delightfully friendly and savvy business owner who now raises her own family minutes from where she grew up." Click here to read the entire article...
"Pop some champers and celebrate with the Brits on Friday, April 29 as Prince William of Wales marries Kate Middleton. Fittingly, the ladies at A Taste of Britain have some specials in store for the royal wedding day, so we too can celebrate in style. Indulge in some complimentary champagne, traditional lamb shepherd's pie, William's favorite dessert (banana flan), and this writer's personal favorite sticky toffee pudding!
"...Surely the scones create loyal customers of their own. The menu regular features four flavors (buttermilk, lemon, raisin and cherry almond) and one special flavor each month (April's is a spectacular raspberry cream cheese, May's will be blueberry cinnamon), and they're served warm with your choice of clotted cream, raspberry preserves or tart lemon curd. Besides the superb scones, the Full Afternoon Tea also comes with a variety of tea sandwiches, such as cucumber & minted cream cheese, chicken salad, egg salad, cheddar & tomato chutney and roast beef & Boursin. Wrap up tea with some sweet treats like chocolate mousse, peppermint chocolate brownie bites, or lemon cake with strawberry frosting." Click here to read the entire article...
