A New Tea Book

I love Tea Time magazine and Hoffman Media books.  In August their website  stated they were coming out with a new book, Tea Celebrations,  to be released September 10th, so I  pre-ordered it.

It arrived last week when I was knee-deep in my Anne of Green Gables tea party preparations.  I took it out of the mailing envelope, but leisure reading would have to wait.
My tea and blogging friend, Marilyn, at Delights of the Heart, asked in her blog recently, "What book would you take to the garden?"   I don't have a garden to retreat to, but I'm enoying my new Tea Celebrations book indoors today.

I like the first sentence of the introduction:  "In a day and age when we seem to move at far too fast a pace, tea time invites us to slow down and savor some of the best things in life - relationships, food and tea."
This book provides beautiful photographs of tablescapes, recipes for eight annual celebrations, helpful hints & how-tos, expert tea pairings, and lots of tea time inspiration.  It has some great tea quotes too.  This is an excellent book for every tea lover's library.  I have all four of Hoffman Media's tea books  in my library.  Now that the weather is changing, it's nice to sit down with a cup of tea and  some good tea books to gather ideas for the next tea party.   Hummm... a fall or Halloween themed tea party maybe?

  1. That book looks wonderful, in fact, all 3 of them do. I think it is going on my wish list! Enjoy.

  2. Well, now I want to read Anne of Green Gables again! ... I agree, I love Tea Time Magazine and recently discovered that there is a new Tea in Texas Magazine, so I am excited about that because its tea stuff local for me! Thanks for the reminder to get my book! As soon as I get it, we can read "together"!

  3. Wonderful! I have been tardy ordering mine, having been on holiday. So..I thank you for the reminder!

  4. Thanks for mentioning me here. The book sounds delightful. I loooove that quote. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. Hi Phyllis,
    I'm so glad you did this post! I have been wanting to order this book but have the other two and wondered if I really needed it. Of course I do! I'm so glad you like it.

  6. OK, this was actually a very helpful post to me, as I had been wondering if "Tea Celebrations" was a reprint of an earlier book, but no, that one was "Celebrating Tea." Thanks!
