It's said that she asked for tea and "sweet breads," which included scones, and was so taken by the combination that she repeated the order every afternoon thereafter, establishing the English tradition.

If you'd like to bake scones for your next Poetry Teatime, here is a simple recipe.

How to Make a Pot of Tea

How to Make a Pot of Tea

My copper kettle whistles merrily
And signals that it is time for tea.
The fine china cups are filled with the brew.
There’s lemon and sugar and sweet cream, too.
But, best of all there’s friendship, between you and me.
As we lovingly share our afternoon tea.
