much more than just a "cuppa"
A deceptively slim little volume, "Taking Time for Tea", by Diana Rosen, is actually brimming over with delightful tea tidbits and tasty treats. Ms. Rosen's tea expertise and love of subject are blended with insights into the production of tea and gentle reminders to be as good to yourself as you are to others. There are also a number of suggestions for themed tea parties. My favorite was "Irish Breakfast on a Rainy Morning"--an Autumn morning with the sound of the rain beating on a cottage roof. A mug of hearty black tea, sweetened with milk and a little sugar, is accompanied by warm, freshly-baked soda bread, butter, and marmalade. The recipe for the "Irish Breakfast Soda Bread" sounds wonderful, and I mean to try it very soon! Prepare yourself a tray loaded with a pot of your favorite tea, delicious little sandwiches, cookies and other nibbles, and settle in to read this beautifully produced and very enjoyable book.Was this review helpful?
