A NEW TEA BOOK FOR TEA TIME TUESDAY! Victoria's "The Essential Tea Companion"





Today for Tea Time Tuesday, I am featuring a relatively new (2009) Victoria book and a delicious Lemon Tea Bread baked from a recipe in the book.....of course I  gathered mix and match tea items to put with my "Friendship Teapot".





Who doesn't need another tea book full of favorite menus for tea parties and celebrations!  There are chapters on a wide range of topics and resources in the back of the book. Tea Party menus for children and special occasions make up one chapter and also instructions on collecting teasets, etc.





Last night I baked the Lemon Tea Bread on page 139 and the house smelled so lovely.  Don't you love it when you look at a recipe and see that you already have the ingredients with out having to go to the market!





There are so many wonderful recipes and photos in this book - many gleaned from past Victoria Magazines of old!





The chapters cover many aspects of tea and you would definitely consider this a well rounded tea book!  Price is $19.95








Be sure and join others who participate in Tea Time Tuesday with Sandy at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/

Her blog is called Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations!

Bernideen's sells the tea book for $19.95.

Dear Bernideen,
you show again such lovely cups with roses - I always love to see your china. And the lemon bread looks so yummy. I will try to make it also - with a cup of tea.
Greetings, Johanna

What a lovely tea table. Those teacups are beautiful. I have that Victoria book in my library. I'll have to try that lemon tea bread for a change from lemon bars.

I always grab any tea party books I can find. You can never have enough! ;) I love the Victoria books....I miss the "old" magazine, somehow the new version just isn't the same. Lovely tea post as always, Bernideen! I do love all your teapots and tea things.

Yum! I love any lemon-flavoured dessert and especially with a good cup of tea. And your friendship teapot is so cute! :)

Lemon Bread and Mix and Match tea ware are delightful. I do so love it when I have all the ingredients for a recipe on hand too.

I have all the Victoria tea books but not this one -- I'll have to remedy that soon!

What a delightful book! That lemon bread is a must on my try to bake it list. I'll let you know how it goes. I am reminded of a childhood teapot I wish I still had in that friendship one of yours. How beautiful and so fun! I love reading your blog, you always have such delightful things that make me smile! Thanks for making my night!!
