Book Description

Sit down for afternoon tea, that convivial daily interlude filled with gossip and camaraderie, soothing ritual, and cakes. Presiding over every tea table, of course, is the teapot, setting the mood with whimsy or majesty, elegant understatement or floral exuberance. The Collectible Teapot Tea Calendar features a year of rare and beautiful teapots photographed in lovely teatime settings. A romantic pink 1893 Royal Worcester is perfect for a heartfelt rendezvous for two. Emily Post's own favorite 1910 Calyx Ware set welcomes friends to a very proper tea. Accompanying each month's setting are morsels of history and lore from food writer Joni Miller.

The Teapot and Tea Calendar for 2009 by Joni Miller with photographs by Martin Brigdale is beautifully done. Each month is graced with a photograph of a table setting of a teapot and savories that is delightful to the eye. In addition there are individual postcards for each month that I enjoy sending to friends throughout the year.

Each picture each month is described in detail to the origin and date of each of the teapots and a caption of information on the art of tea throughout the years. I have purchased many Teapot and Tea Calendars for the last few years as gifts and my friends have saved each of their calendars at the end of the year. A wonderful treat to myself and friends.

It seldom happens that a product is even better than what one would expect but these lovely tea calendars are just such a product. They are beautifully designed, gorgeously photographed and user friendly. The date boxes are a good size for those who make good use of their calendars for scheduling while the photographs are exquisite and draw one in for a closer look. For history buffs there is information on the origins of each month's unique teapot and in style they range from the formal to the quirky. I have had many positive comments on my teapot calendars over the last few years and this year have given three of the 2009 version to friends for Christmas gifts.

This calendar is fantastic with the history backgrounds and manner tips included alongside the beautifully-photographed sceneries! I wish there was a coffee one fashioned like it, although I already have two past calendars that came complete with perforated postcards (2007 & 2008)! You should try a treat recipe bonus to accompany each calendar, laden with special serving suggestions!

This is the second Teapot Calendar I have ordered. I just love it, it is so beautiful, the pictures are amazing. I also love the postcards that come with it. I will buy one every year. I highly recommend this Calendar. I proudly display it it my kitchen.
