Paperback

From Booklist
Take time out for a restful tea break! Stoddard's personal philosophy is of a decidedly Eastern persuasion: life should be celebrated through the ceremony of tea. This doyenne of interior decorating extols the benefits of making quiet times a regular part of each day, where one enjoys solitary, comtemplative moments over a simple cup of tea. Stoddard also suggests unhurried tea parties for good friends or honored guests as a sure way of improving the quality of life through the sharing of carefully prepared light fare, fragrant teas, and treasured cups, teapots, linens, and other special items to enhance these occasions. Recipes for assorted goodies are included, and there will be line drawings to illustrate Stoddard's upbeat text. Alice Joyce --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly
Tea enthusiasts can rejoice that afternoon tea has been rediscovered as an elegant ritual. In this compilation of teatime repasts at American bed & breakfast inns, Greco shows the varied ways in which innkeepers serve the meal, from the traditional, European formal afternoon teas--complete with English butler, silver equipage, antique linens and clotted cream--to high teas resplendent with hot savories and chamber music to rather ingenious American occasions in which the Civil War, Gone with the Wind , Mardi Gras and snow skiing play dominant roles in decor and cuisine. Despite the occasional spicy Mexican or low-fat herbal tea offered here, Victorian and antiquarian notes resound in most of the inns, and delectable recipes often suggest a British, even Dickensian, flavor, as in Rose Manor's lemon curd...
