If you are expecting a huge collection of recipes or instructions as to the protocols of serving Afternoon Tea, this book is not for you. However if you already have an idea of how to serve afternoon tea and simply need some traditional recipes, this may be a good book to use.

I really enjoyed the photography and the recipes as well. I would have liked more recipes for the savory courses, but I loved the petite sweets and the tortes and breads.

Not an exhaustive tea reference, which should be obvious since it is only 64 pages, but a good one.

I throughly enjoyed this book. Besides how to make the perfect pot of tea, the recipes are wonderfull, with a full page picture of a finished product of each recipe. And there is a nice variety of recipes of tea time foods, that one can prepare for a nice afternoon tea for oneself or friends. I would recommmend this book to anyone who enjoys the pleasure of tea.

First off, I was surprised at the size of the book, rather smaller than it appears online. If you are looking for a pretty little book with a few recipes with pictures, then you will enjoy it. I think the photography is lovely and the recipes, while not tested yet myself, seem delicious. I was hoping to get a book with more photos of different tea settings and such to go along with the recipes so in that regard, this book is disappointing. Still, I will keep it to go along with other tea books I have.

It's hard to tell about books without being able to see a little more inside. I wanted a beautiful picture book. This one is a recipe book but not lots of pics. It's o.k.

I wish I had read all the reviews before purchasing this book. Like two other reviewers, I expected more. The cover was inviting, but inside there was little to look at in the way of table settings, and the recipes included were rather standard tea fare unless this is your first tea book. Had I seen it first in a bookstore or been able to look at some of the pages on-line, I would have chosen another. It is fine if you are just beginning to do teas, but it doesn't offer anything unusual to the mix for a person who has been doing teas for years. Disappointing for me, but recipes were fine - what were there.
