Tea & Etiquette: Candles

Lighted candles add so much atmosphere to an afternoon tea, but there is a candle etiquette to be observed: Curtains should be drawn when candles are lighted.

From Tea & Etiquette by Dorothea Johnson

(And personally, I feel that unscented candles are best at an afternoon tea.)

I do agree with the unscented candles at tea, but do love candles for the ambiance. I burn scented candles when not eating and needing to freshen up the house.

I agree, because I don't like the floral/spice/cinnamon scents competing for airtime with my tea and foods!
