Tea - in the literary sense










Check out the Tea Bog-A-Thon ..A great idea, by a lovely hostess!





I don't have many tea themed books, but this little recipe book caught my eye when on vacation in Scotland. The recipes are very typical of the fare one might find when out for tea in the afternoon, or for a meal.

Hi Millie,
I couldn't believe my eyes when I visited your blog and saw this little book! I also have a copy of this, given to me by someone who was in Scotland on holiday, and knew I would appreciate a 'different' kind of cookbook. I can't remember if I have cooked anything from it, but seeing it here has motivated me to dig it out of the bookshelf and have another read!

Looks like a lovely book. I love Scotland and tea in Great Britain just has a wonderful feel about it that is hard to duplicate in the states. Enjoy...

This book should be interesting since most of the tea books I have follow the English tea tradition. See my post - http://oakrisecottage.blogspot.com/2008/01/french-tea-other-tea-themed-books.html

It looks like a dear little book. Do you have a favorite recipe from it? Scones or what types of recipes are offered?

I've got an Irish book to match the Scottish one, and they're both favorites of mine. Both were gifts and I agree with your thoughts about it(them)

Oh, this is a lovely little book! It's part of a series and I love them all! My dear aunt has given me several --- she purchased them on her explorations in the British Isles! Thank you so much for sharing! I'm gad you are participating in the Gracious Hospital-i-Tea blog-a-thon!
