Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Author Lori Torrance has written a delightful book about tea rooms in Texas. Not only does she direct you to every charming tearoom there is, she also tells you what to see and do once you are there. There's a little history, a little guidebook, and even some recipes from these delightful locations. Look at what people are saying:
"Infused with wit, Ms. Lori Torrance's "Tea for Texas" serves up the authentic flavor of teahouse varieties found all across Texas. Even if you've never visited a Texas tearoom, Lori's attention to detail will transport you to a cozy table in the corner".
Marie Moody Cruthirds
Membership Chairman "Texas Tea Tours"
"Lori Torrance has written a delightful book full of humor and information on charming out-of-the-way places to have tea and also little-known facts about the area. As a former Texan, I can't wait to go back and experience them for myself".
Pandra Dickson
"Subtle Teas Newsletter"
"Tearoom owners, take warning: Ms. Torrance may fill your chairs with men. The food and the ambiance sound too great to interest women only!"
John S. McCord
Author, speaker, and entertainer
"Ms. Torrance entertains and delights as she describes the cuisine, culture, and character of these special places. Tea for Texas will be my new traveling companion as I explore this wondrous state".
Sharry Buckner
Author of "The Great Stays of Texas" and "Exploring Texas with Children"

A MUST FOR TEA LOVERS What a charming, humorous guide to the tearooms in Texas! Lori Torrance has done such a wonderful job, even my husband is ready to search out some of these places!! It's a miracle! ha If you're a tea lover and enjoy gathering yourself in quiet, little out of the way places, you've got to get this book. And it's the perfect gift for tea loving friends.
And, if you love Texas like I do, you would also enjoy checking out Last of the Old Time Texans, Texas Bad Girls: Harlots, Hussies, & Horsethieves, or a Browser's Book to Texas History....

Format: Paperback
This book is great! It is a guide to all the tearooms in Texas! It has pictures, menus, famous quotes, histories of the town the tearoom is in, as well as the history of the tearoom! It even has various fillers, like "How to Read Tea Leaves and What the Symbols Mean", "How to Make a Proper British Cup of Tea", etc. This is so worth the money. I know the author and she has spent well over a year, with her mother, traveling to all these tearooms. They took pictures (inside and out) and the pictures look fantastic. It is not a critique, but a handy guide you can take with you. Why settle for fast food, when you can have an ice cold glass (or even cup of hot) Almond tea , choices of homemade sandwiches, soups and outrageous desserts in a quiet victorian decorated room. In one tearoom, you can even hear singing English Countryside birds. Personally, I have always been a coffee drinker, but now, I am even ready to go drink tea!! (cold or hot). Enjoy the book, I sure do..
