The simple ceremony that surrounds this most poetic of all beverages is best found gracing the candlelit parlors, the Colonial keeping rooms, the sprawling Victorian porches, the wood-paneled libraries, the Federal dining rooms, the fragrant gardens, and the rustic brick courtyards of American bed & breakfasts and country inns.
Tea-Time at the Inn is more than a cookbook, although with over 200 recipes it is certainly that. It is an invitation to enjoy the experience of tea-time at more than forty of America's finest country inns and bed & breakfasts. From a luscious cream tea at Rose Manor (Manheim, Pennsylvania) and a hearty classical high tea at the Village Inn (Lenox, Massachusetts), to a proper white linen tea at Red Castle Inn (Nevada City, California), a Civil War tea at the Doubleday Inn (on the Gettysburg battlefield), or a book lover's tea at the Inn at Cedar Crossing (Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin), Tea-Time at the Inn is filled with elegance, creativity, and charm.
The book includes a description of the unique tea held at each inn, the innkeeper's favorite recipes for tea foods, and pictures of the inn and tea service as well as mouth-watering photographs of the foods. Tea-Time at the Inn also contains tips, advice, and stimulating ideas to help the reader recreate the teas described. Tea-time is a fun and easy way to entertain, and this book will certainly spawn many exciting ideas for parties at home.
