I filed this under cookbooks (even though it isn't) because I didn't want to create a separate category just for "Afternoon Tea." It was short and I'm not entirely sure what the point was. There was a little bit of history, a few recipes, but mostly just some senseless ramblings that I couldn't seem to follow.

I'm a big tea drinker, so I very much enjoyed Muriel Moffat's brief history of tea and memoir of he own tea experiences. I plan an trying some of the recipes tomorrow!

A few recipes and background on the history of tea and the traditions surrounding its consumption. An OK little gift book, I suppose, but pretty short and not especially enlightening.

Some history (anecdotal) and lots of yummy-looking recipes. Haven't tried them, but they look good!
