Cox also loves English country tea, a delightful tradition that features hot tea with tasty sandwiches, rich scones and sinfully delicious trifle.Twice a year, Cox organizes the parishioners of Epiphany Episcopal Church in presenting an English Country Tea in the World War I-era chapel in Odenton. Church pews give way to tables filled with people who enjoy the lovely food and the relaxing atmosphere.
