Additional Details

Description: A Proper Tea records the ceremony of English afternoon tea with delicious recipes and enchanting watercolours. There are teas for many occasions -- for the drawing room, the nursery and the farmhouse kitchen, for a children's party, a garden party and a tea dance, and many more. 

A menu is given for each tea, including in all over 50 recipes. These are taken from traditional cottage and country house teas; some are drawn from colonial British cuisine and some are modern variations. The food is shown served on fine examples of authentic china, from Crown Derby and Coalport to Clarice Cliff, and the text describes the history and etiquette attached to each form of this unique repast. 

This captivating book, best savoured with a cup of tea in hand, revives the flavours and customs of a civilized, fast-vanishing world.
