Traditional English Afternoon Tea of The E & O Hotel

Traditional English Afternoon Tea @ 1885, The E & O Hotel

At 1885, Traditional English Afternoon Tea is served in an elegant setting starting with a selection of very thin sandwiches, like thinly sliced cucumber, smoked salmon and roast beef sandwiches. This is followed by scones with home-made strawberry jam, clotted cream and a selection of cakes.
I have finally made it during the first Sunday of July, with YY company. It was a delightful afternoon tea session after dragging for almost a year. *My goodness!*

What surprised me the most is the sweetness level. All the cakes and tea pastries served here are not too sweet, just adequate. If it's at other places, I would have easily turned 'jilak' after consuming a few pieces.
The clotted cream is super fine and soft. Light-weighted, not creamy rich. Strawberry jam is mildly sweetened.
