The Ritz London Book of Afternoon Tea
"A delightful book by Helen Simpson."
This book, a christmas present is a little gem. I read it whilst partaking in my favourite beverage, green tea from my special pot and tea cup.
Helen Simpson tells us the story of "Tea at the Ritz", "The History of Tea Drinking" along with many recipes, teas and the variety of afternoon teas we can enjoy.
As yet I haven't had the time to try the recipes but I will definitely look at doing some of them.
I am so looking forward to one day having tea at the Ritz and a hearty high tea in Scotland. The High Tea Inspector will be coming soon.
This is a lovely, well written book by a lady who knows all about the world's favourite drink. Enjoy.
