  • With beautiful writing, exquisite art and photography, and 63 traditional recipes, this elegant volume pays tribute to the joys of teatime. This centuries-old ritual is serene and intimate, and each page reveals a special way to celebrate the occasion. Take tea (properly brewed, of course) with English savouries and sweets, and an elegant setting of fine china. "Attend" the Mad Hatter's tea party through excerpts from Alice in Wonderland. Lose yourself in the tea-inspired thoughts of M.F.K. Fisher, Marcel Proust, and Henry James. Then try some recipes for classic dishes, such as Cucumber Sandwiches, Lemon Curd Hearts, Salmon Mousse, Currant and Pecan Scones, and Meringue Kisses. And, of course you'll learn about the wonderful variety of teas-from mint and orange pekoe to vanilla milk and iced clove cooler-and how to serve the perfect pot.
