The Pleasures of Tea
Recipes and RitualsBook - 1999
Stylish, contemporary, and resourceful, The Pleasures of Tea celebrates the timeless ritual of serving one of the world's most popular and soothing drinks. Beyond the usual "afternoon tea, " The Pleasures of Tea conjures all sorts of special occasions. It sings of quiet moments in which to savor tea and friendship, demonstrating how to serve tea "with atmosphere" in evocative settings -- on a terrace, by the fireplace, in a quiet corner, overlooking the sea. It presents options for serving both hot and iced tea at occasions, ranging from breakfast with toast, jam, and soft-boiled eggs to a little girls' tea party in an outdoor setting to a cup before bedtime.
