I really enjoyed this cookbook. The author has created tea party recipes from some of your favorite books. The recipes range from very simple to more time consuming ones but the instructions are clear and easy to understand. I agree that more guidance is needed for novice tea drinkers. Have fun with this book. Invite a few friends over, Brew some tea, make a few snacks, and discuss your favorite reads. This book will make a great gift for any literary chef. Enjoy

I love that you can go through the book by category (Savories, Bread & Muffings, Sweets, Tea Blends, and Tea Alternatives) as well as suggestions for themed tea party groupings (Alice's Mad Tea Party, Aslan's Feast, An Autumnal Tea Party...) I do wish there had been a few more recipes for each literary source so you could have (for example) a Winnie the Pooh themed party., As it stands, the only books that have themed parties in the themed party idea section are Alice in Wonderland and The Chronicles of Narnia, with Redwall having enough recipes to probably be able to do a Redwall party too. I'd want an Anne of Green Gables tea party, and there are only two Anne of Green Gables recipes. Recipes list a tea pairing if there is a corresponding tea blend. I'd have liked to see some suggested tea pairings in general that aren't customer blends from the book (even just if it goes best with a particular type of herbal, or a green tea, or English Breakfast, or...) This book is a lovely blend of recipes straight from the stories (like the Turkish Delight from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) as well as several that are more inspired by literature (like the Queen of Hearts' Painted Rose Cupcakes).

Books, tea and sumptuous recipes, oh my! That’s the delicious whole of A LITERARY TEA PARTY, which made me swoon the first I learned of it. Every recipe you’d need for a proper afternoon soirée, plus luscious tea pairings and quotes from beloved books. Includes recipes for Savories, Breads & Muffins, Sweets, Homemade Tea Blends, and Tea Alternatives. Highly salivating! Thanks to NetGalley and Skyhorse Publishing for the ARC in exchange for my honest review. #AliteraryTeaParty #NetGalley
