Victoria and Tea

I would have to say that my very favorite tea books (published by the "former" Victoria magazine) are:

The Charms of Tea

(Purchase here)

The Pleasures of Tea

(Purchase here)

The Art of Taking Tea

(Purchase here)

The relaunched Victoria magazine is publishing tea books again,
and they have a new one coming out in May 2009:

Victoria The Essential Tea Companion

(Pre-order here)

Here's a description from Amazon:

Whether we’re enjoying a morning break, a quiet afternoon respite, or a soothing moment at day’s end, tea is a ready indulgence. And Victoria has the ideal accompaniment to this celestial beverage.

Victoria The Essential Tea Companion collects the best of three classic Victoria books in a single completely redesigned and beautiful volume. It serves up history and lore, advice on brewing the perfect pot, notes on collectible china, and best of all, menus for eight themed parties, from a children’s tea to a bridal shower. Here are more than 100 recipes for sandwiches, scones, tarts, cakes, savories, breads, and biscuits, as well as flavored teas both hot and iced, and honeys, spreads, and jams. An authoritative appendix provides the elegant final touch.

I have them all except for the last one. I'll have to order it! I thoroughly enjoy the books!

Hi Denise,

I came across your tea blog the other day, and I was wondering if you had tried Kalahari Organic Tea. If you had not had the opportunity to try it yet I could send you some free samples if you would write a review for it. Please let me know if you like this idea.

Having Tea by Trisha Foley was my first tea book and I still love it. I think she was working for Victoria during that time; so the feel is very much like Victoria. I do have the others and love each one of them.

I also have the three Victoria books on tea. I don't know if there would be enough new content in the fourth book, since it is a collection of the first three books. I'll have to look for it in May and decide.
