The Afternoon Tea Collection Book

After a recent discussion about tea books, 
 I decided to highlight some of the tea books in my collection

This pretty book is The Afternoon Tea Collection
by Sterling Publishing

 It is a tea time recipe book with beautiful photos.
 I appreciate being able to see photos of the "finished" recipe.
From the cover, 
"Afternoon tea brings to mind a refined, elegant era when
people took the time to stop for an hour or so to make a proper
cup of tea, bring out the best china and serve dainty sandwiches, little
tarts and slices of cake to their friends..."

There's just something about the grace of tea, the sharing of it and the elegance of such a simple task as brewing and pouring. All those Easter-egg colors and dishes and dainty foods and linens and flowers are like the jewels enhancing an already-beautiful person.

The pastels and the photos have the enchantment of viewing a fairy scene through the magical lens of a childhood Viewmaster---I'm captive at the first glimpse.

And of course, you KNOW which Tea Book is MY favorite!

Both of the books you've shared are nice and I too like to see what a recipe should look like.
I have a number of tea books but not these, perhaps they can go on my list to buy.

The photography alone looks wonderful. This is one I don't have.

I haven't seen that book. I just ordered the book Afternoon Tea from Hoffman Media. Can't wait to get it!

Hi Linda, I don't have either of the books you've featured. I'll have to remedy that! ;-) Thanks so much for sharing them.

Now I have this book, but the cover of mine is different! Wonder if that's because mine was a Barnes and Noble thing? Like you, I enjoy seeing photos of the finished recipe when possible.
