Emilie Barnes Tea Books

I was shopping on Amazon recently and these two books by Emilie Barnes and recently published by Harvest House Publishers popped up as "recommendations" for me.
The Tea Lover's Devotional is a small hardback and is a collection of inspirational stories and devotions with tea time recipes and quotes.
An Invitation to Tea special Celebrations with Treasured Friends, a thin hardback, has lovely paintings by Sandy Lynam Clough may possibly be a re-release of a previous book but with new artwork. I'm not sure. I have a book by the same title by Emilie Barnes and Sandy Clough, but it is packed away and I can't compare the two books at this time.
I enjoy all of Emilie Barnes tea books. Her book If Teacups Could Talk was the first tea-themed book I purchased. It continues to be one of my favorites.

Hello, the aroma of fresh brewd tea brought me to your blog.These books are good to have. Congratulations on your Royal Award.

I agree with you about liking "If Teacups Could Talk." I'd say it is in my Top 10 of all-time favorite tea books! She actually gave a homemaking seminar here and I got her to autograph it, too. Lovely lady!

Her books are lovely and I really like the artwork by Sandy Clough. I have The Twelve Teas of Friendship and The Twelve Teas of Christmas, as well as If Teacups Could Talk. They are a nice addition to a tea library.

The two new books sound great - I'll look them up. Thanks.

When I saw this post I immediately went to Amazon and looked up Emilie Barnes. I haven't heard of her and added her promptly to my wish list. I'd like her tea devotion book the best since some of them might be a bit feminine for me. But I'm building my library of tea books so I'd like to add hers. I too am a budding tea author, working on my first tea book: "Spirituality of Tea." --Jason
