Taking Tea in Jersey A Genuine Jersey cream tea can be given a particular regional twist by replacing the traditional jam with lé nièr beurre – Jersey Black Butter. This is a unique, ages-old Island speciality made from apples, cider, liquorice and spices to create a dark, rich, apple fruit butter. Combined with a generous spoonful of luxurious Jersey cream atop a warm fresh scone, spread with the Island’s famous butter, it makes a real treat – more suited to an adult palette. Whatever preserve provides the finishing touch, no cream tea is complete without butter and cream. As home to the most famous breed of cow in the world, Jersey takes some

beating in the cream league. Genuine Jersey members; the Jersey Dairy and the Classic Herd in St Peter, produce golden butter and rich, luxurious creams, as well as milk for the perfect cup of tea. For an extra thick cream, try the Classic Herd’s clotted variety – it is what the end of a nose was meant to be dipped in to. Products and produce carrying this distinctive Genuine Jersey mark have been reared, grown and caught in Jersey and/or created by accredited Islanders and local businesses who qualify to be members of the Genuine Jersey Products Association. Find out more, visit www.genuinejersey.com
