Tea and cakes – two of my favourite things – so what a treat it was to leaf through a beautifully presented book and immerse myself in the art and history of the afternoon tea ritual. Instead of plonking a tea bag into a chipped mug as you rush from one task to another, how lovely would it be if occasionally you got out your best china, put a tablecloth and flowers on a table and asked friends around for a relaxing afternoon. If you don’t know where to start, this book will tell you about the hi ...more

LOVED IT. I checked this out from my local library, being a tea lover it was a must. I will be purchasing this book to add to my collection. It gives a history of tea.. such warm and inviting photos of tea pots and beautifully set tables. The food is a huge assortment, there is something for all taste buds.

Lovely book. Thoroughly enjoyed baking some traditional recipes. Made my first batch of rough puff paste and it was amazing!

I took a star off my original rating because I've tried a few of the recipes and so far none have turned out. They're fairly simple recipes and I'm an experienced cook/baker, so I'm blaming the book for the mediocre-to-bad results. Going to try a few more and will adjust the rating/review accordingly.

I have long been a fan of teatime. Before marriage, kids, homeschooling, etc sped up the pace of my life, afternoon tea was a time I enjoyed often. I still sometimes take a tea tray off to have a little time alone, and I love doing tea parties for my girls. In fact, for her eleventh birthday, my daughter requested a tea party. We made it a "High Tea" so Daddy could join in. We had a great time cooking together to get ready for it, and that's where this book comes in. We didn't make every dish ou ...more

This book is a delight. After a tidy few pages on the history of tea and detailed instructions on how to prepare your tea, it launches into a diverse collection of delicious teatime treats, lavishly illustrated with gorgeous photos of the treats displayed on all sorts of beautiful china. We're not currently having a regular teatime at our house (although this book may just inspire us to start one), but we've tried quite a few of the recipes for various occasions. We had the sausage rolls for Tha ...more

This book is a winner in every way. It is full of recipes for teatime staples and the recipes are provided in several ways (weight, metric, and standard cups/tablespoons/teaspoons - at least the standard for American baking). Put on the kettle and bake up a delightful afternoon tea...

Found a great cookbook for mom with lots of sweet and savory tea recipes. I especially liked the tea sandwiches and scones sections. Mom just got a KitchenAid mixer, so I hope she can make some goodies.
