Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm (cider + cornish tea), Cornwall

We headed out to Healey’s Cornish Cyder farm (yes it is spelt Cyder here, not Cider) in Truro yesterday morning with Jesse and Judith and tasted a variety of their cyders.

The Scrumpy cyders are all not bubbly and in terms of non-bubbly cyder it just doesn’t taste right to me (maybe I just need to drink more). Jane & I particularly liked the Pear Rattler, which is a bubbly apple cider with pear juice added.


We walked through a doorway and had a Cornish Tea which is very similar to Devonshire Tea and consisted of scones (normal or cyder based), jam and a “gurt dollop of clotted cream”. Having looked up gurt afterwards there are many definitions, but “generous” seems to be the most appropriate here. As for the clotted cream and scones, they tasted great.
