Description: Taking tea is a quintessentially English occasion, one that is becoming increasingly popular in American homes as well as in fine hotels. The Palm Court Tearoom at the Ritz in London has for many years been one of the most delightful places to experience the tradition at its best. 

The London Ritz Book of Afternoon Tea captures the essence of this traditional British occasion and provides the reader with all the Ritz expertise in the ceremony as well as the recipes. 

In addition, the literary and historical associations of the ceremony are amply illustrated with passages from Dickens to Oscar Wilde. The enchanting drawings will further inform and amuse the reader. 

Over 50 recipes are included for different kinds of afternoon tea specialties from delicate sandwiches to serve on the lawn, to crumpets and muffins for hearty teas in front of a roaring fire. The author also gives an infallible guide to the many blends of tea and their suitability for particular occasions.
