Editorial Reviews

Review

Sensible, sophisticated advice on the etiquette woven into the rituals of tea time. Johnson and Richardson have created a book that is fun and easy, and sure to increase everyone's enjoyment of tea. --John Harney, Master Tea Blender

If someone as formidable as Lady Bracknell of Oscar Wilde s The Importance of Being Earnest were to invite me to tea, I'd know exactly what to do: Call Dorothea Johnson! Not even the loftiest and most English ceremony of afternoon tea daunts Dorothea. The addition of Bruce Richardson's tea knowledge makes this a valuable tea resource --James Norwood Pratt, author the The Tea Dictionary --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

A revised and illustrated hardcover 2009 edition is now available. Published by Benjamin Press. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I am starting a small catering business doing tea parties! This book is perfect! It has everything you always wanted to know about preparing, enjoying and serving tea. From the different types of tea from Cream Tea to High Tea and what to do with the tea bag after you've taken it out of your tea cup. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to serve and to enjoy a proper afternoon of tea. Thank you for being so thorough.

Format: Hardcover
I find this book very useful and informative. The author presents the material in a concise and down to earth manner. The etiquette portion of this book contains do's and do not's that leaves no questions. The tone of the book is conversational just like the topic it explains. If you are thinking about having a tea party for the first time or attending to one, this book is a must read!

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent follow-up to Mrs. Johnson's miniature book "The Little Book of Etiquette". It primarily focuses on etiquette in the tea room, but it also discusses everyday etiquette as well as business etiquette. This is an easy to understand, user-friendly book. A must for anyone who loves to take tea.

What a useful book! This book did not talk down to me, nor did I feel like I had to be a Miss Manners to enjoy this book. It helped me plan a wedding shower for my sister; every quest complimented me after and wanted a copy of the book.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. It is exactly what i was looking for. there are a few recipes but mostly this whole book is dedicated to the etiquette of serving or attending tea. well written in a sense that it does not talk down to you- rather an enlightenment of the proper way to enjoy tea. a great read!

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By L. M. Durkin on May 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful little book. If you enjoy "all things tea" then this is the book for you. Easily read, with details about proper etiquette for every type of social and business situation. It truly would be a nicer world if people (including children) were more often taught these things. Mrs. Johnson intersperses the chapters with interesting personal stories and recipes. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I was never a tea drinker, but always felt left out as the popularity of now drinking tea started. I knew nothing about different types, how to serve it, what to serve with it, and just the simple things everyone knows. This book helped me with all of that and now I even like tea. After a few hours of reading, I know more about tea etiquette than anyone I know.
