It won’t come as a great surprise to many people that cream teas aren’t exactly the ideal food for those on a diet but everyone deserves a treat and cream teas are definitely worth it!

For those that want to know the damage we’ve listed the nutritional information for a cream tea below. Obviously the amount of calories, fat and sugar in a cream tea can vary massively depending on how big the scones are, how much jam is applyed and how big the mountain of clotted cream is.

How many calories in a one scone cream tea?

For a smaller cream tea with a more conservative serving of jam and cream and a medium scone the calorie count can be reduced to around 400kcal, with approximately 22 grams fat, 45 grams carbohydrates and 5 grams protein.

In a large scone you’re looking at around 360 calories with 12 grams fat, 56 grams carbohydrates and 8 grams protein, whereas if the scone is a smallish medium scone it should contain about 300 calories with 7 grams fat, 21 grams carbohydrates and 4 grams protein.
