Description: The tradition of teatime has long been a cherished one, bringing tranquil settings to the mind, delicate refreshments to the palate, and warm conversation with good friends to the heart. 

The Charms of Tea pays tribute to this elegant ritual with inspirational writings, recipes and special menus, and exquisite art and photography that set the mood for this very special time of day. 

Share teatime with Lewis Carroll's Alice, Anne of Green Gables, Mr. Chips, and even Peter Pan. Lose yourself in the writings of Henry James, Daphne du Maurier, Saki, Marcel Proust, and M.F. K. Fisher as they share their thoughts on the delights and comforts of tea. 

There are nearly 65 recipes for making sweets and savories, including such classic teatime treats as Cucumber Sandwiches with Mint Butter, Currant and Pecan Scones, Sage Bread, Spiced Blackberry Jam, Raspberry and Lemon Curd Hearts, and Chocolate Walnut Torte. 

You'll learn the secrets of preparing and serving the perfect pot of tea, the wonderful variety of tea leaves to choose from, suggestions for beautiful table settings, and unique menu ideas for picnic teas, breakfast teas, garden teas, and nursery teas. 

The Charms of Tea, with its delightful reminiscences and delicious recipes, is to be shared, savored, and treasured as the tradition of tea itself has been for more than two centuries.
