I am checking avios.com.

Thanks. The reason I mentioned BA at all is that they're a "partner airline" and had EI been a oneworld member then this might have worked, but they aren't, so it seems not. (Annoyingly, avios...

So, for the record, BA really does consider that the scone menu item is fair to be referred to as 'afternoon tea' and really does consider that 'afternoon tea' does not include tea by default:
