Google Doodle celebrates scones, a beloved UK tea-time delicacy. Legend has it that the 7th Duchess of Bedford popularised the combo with her daily tea.
Today's Google Doodle pays tribute to scones, a beloved afternoon tea delicacy in the United Kingdom. These delightful treats, typically enjoyed with jam and clotted cream, can be found in bakeries spanning from the northern reaches of Scotland to the southern tip of England. It was on this day in 1657 that the concept of "afternoon tea" was first introduced and offered in London.
