Description: What could be more elemental than a cup of tea? Whether at a formal tea party, in an elegant salon, or alone by the fire, taking tea never fails to provide a few moments of calm, refinement, and grace. In The Art of Taking Tea, the editors of Victoria Magazine lead you on a journey of discovery into the world of tea and its many customs. 

With beautiful photographs as your guides, visit a sumptuous Parisian tea salon, a modern tea bar on Boston's Beacon Hill, and a tea sommelier in New York. Trace the tea leaf's odyssey from faraway hillsides to your cup, and delight in the drink's alluring accoutrements: the prettiest china, gleaming silver, and floral bouquets. Teatime also offers a chance to deepen old friendships or develop new ones. In these pages are many ideas for incorporating tea into any gathering or celebration, including a book-club tea, a reunion tea, a tea to honor a dear friend, and a week-after-the-wedding tea to thank well-wishers. Throughout are lovely quotations that extol the style and spirit of tea. 


Condition: Bookboards, interior pages and dust jacket are in beautiful condition.
