Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

London and tea go together like jam and scones, and this lovely guide presents 33 fine places to enjoy afternoon tea in the capital. From classic spots like Claridge's and the Wolseley to more unexpected, off-the-beaten-path places, there's something here to suit every taste and budget. A history of the venues, details on their available teas, advice on nearby attractions, and popular recipes make this the hippest, most up-to-date source of information for London residents and tourists alike.

I almost didn't buy this book because I figured I could get most of the information on a google search, but the photography was so sumptuous that I thought it might be worth it... and it was. On a recent trip to London, this book guided me towards two venues I hadn't otherwise read about (Corinthia Hotel and Dean Street Townhouse), both of which had really lovely teas, and also reminded me that the National Portrait Gallery restaurant, which I'd been thinking about having lunch at anyway, also featured afternoon tea. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who's serious about trying tea in London.

If you are planning a trip to London this IS THE BOOK to use to plan for a Tea Time. It is
beautifully photographed and detailed. Only sad thing the recipes promised in the index was a
total of 5. Wish there were more. Vibrate guide book or just fun to read and dream.

This book whisks the reader into the world of London's most elegant locations for tea. After reading it, I wanted to make airline reservations to Heathrow to have tea in person!

If there is one aspect of English life that epitomises the spirit of this small island, it is afternoon tea. The simple pleasure derived from the tea break is something we Brits hold dear. So in many ways this compact volume nicely written by Susan Cohen is an indispensable guide to some of the finest venues to enjoy a classy cuppa in the capital. Besides offering the lowdown on such classic establishments as Claridge's and The Ritz, 'London's Afternoon Teas' also throws light on some unexpected little gems tucked away in London's back streets.
Besides providing the reader with an accurate description of the fare and ambiance to be enjoyed at each establishment, Cohen gives us a fascinating insight into the origins of this most quintessential of English traditions. And for those less than familiar with the topography of London, there's a handy map that lets you see at a glance where exactly each teatime venue lies in this glorious city.
So if you want to sample some of the world's finest afternoon teas, head for London. But for heaven's sake, don't forget to bring a copy of this compact little volume. You'll find it invaluable.
