The History of Tea and Tea Times as Seen in Books focuses on tea and tea time in books, plays and poems. Whether used for flirtation or a reason to bring key characters together, this delightful book explores our relationship with tea through fiction. Divided into chapters to include a brief tea history, romantic teas and tea parties (from the infamous Boston Tea Party to the bizarre Madhatter's Tea Party), Claire will take us on a walk through the long, dark tea time - of literature. The use of recipes based on the scenes in the featured books is a USP and one which is bound to appeal to readers.
