Starting with tips on choosing and brewing teas–from white and green teas to herbal rooibos and different black teas–Tea Party then shares more than seventy-five recipes, both savory and sweet, as part of twenty themed tea parties. Stern features classic tea accompaniments such as Scones with Clotted Cream and Cucumber-Mint Tea Sandwiches as well as novel recipes that use flavorful and healthful tea as an ingredient, including Homemade Potato Fries with Ceylon Tea Salt and Tea-Scented Chocolate Truffles.

Absolutely Wonderful Book!!!! I just can’t say enough about this book. It’s a wonderful reference for anyone wanting to have “real” tea parties. It is full of recipes, tips and tons of information about tea parties. The author is obviously very passionate and well educated about her subject.

Great book I love this book. I can see why the dissapointment from others, but it has great ideas, which allows you to be creative with her suggestions for table settings, invitations, etc. I would have loved more pictures of the recipes, but still recommend the book.
