Victoria's The Essential Tea Companion

A new book in my tea library, The Essential Tea Companion Favorite Menus for Tea Patries and Celebrations by Victoria, was published in 2009.  This hardcover book includes the best photos and recipes from previously published  Victoria books, The Charms of Tea, The Pleasures of Tea, and The Art of Taking Tea.  The book includes theme tea and menu planning ideas, a list of sources for tea and tea accessories, and a guide to afternoon tea places in the USA and abroad.  The guide is a bit outdated, but I've never seen one that is not, in my opinion.

If beautiful tea photos insipre you, as they do me, you will find this book a nice resource.

I love Victoria magazine, I posted recently about the magazine on my blog. Many of Victoria books, I have spent a fortune on obtaining and back issues as well. I absolutely adore tea and also posted a tea menu with pics from a Five Star hotel here.

I also visit the Victoria forum from time to time. So bye for now and I will see you around the blogs.
