I am amazed at how great this tiny book is. It's packed with great recipes and lots of fun tea facts and history. It has no pictures, and usually I'm a staunch photo advocate, but they're not needed, as the directions are very easy to understand and follow.
You do need a food processor for many of the recipes, as tea sandwiches often use a pureed filling, and the assembly required for most is not for the faint at heart. You need time and dedication to carry out most of these, although some quick breads, cookies and sandwiches are an exception. But if it's an impressive spread you want, this book is a great buy. (I have other tea-time books that are bigger, more lavish, much more expensive, and not near as useful as this one!)

The recipes are easy and delicious, it's a great bargain, and it makes a nice gift. One of my favorite tea books!

This little (?) book has been a favorite. But since going to England, it has become an even bigger must have for me. The recipes are as authentic as I have seen. We stayed at a B&B and she used ones nearly identical - at least I couldn't tell by the taste that there was a difference! We also had tea at Sally Lunn's and the recipes from there are truly right on. I am so glad I had this before I visited. Now I would be "lost" without it. A must have for anyone who loves tea!

This is a wonder-full little book of recipes and information about tea, history, how to brew tea and much more. Even those not 'into' tea but who love to cook and entertain will love this LITTLE? book. I love to cook and enjoy all the ceremony of teatime and learning little tidbits of information on both subjects and plan to give this book to my special friends that I know will love it as much as I do. ENJOY!

This little book with the attractive cover is a great source for making teatime eatables. Sandwiches, scones, buns, and pastries are doable with these easy recipes.
I had heard of Sally Lunn bread and Welsh Rabbit and here is a recipe that combines both. And the gingerbread cake brings back memories when my mother used to bake us gingerbread cakes.
You can pick this little book at gift shops, gourmet food shops as well as bookstores. Can stand with the best of my tea accessory books.

After getting this book, I have made a few recipes and the results were very good. My friends liked the sandwiches and cake, and I am very happy with the recipes. It's too bad there's no photos, but all is well. There's lots of things to try, and yes, a food processor is nice.

The Totally Teatime Cookbook is an excellent value for the cost. It would be a splendid 'stocking stuffer,' hostess gift, or small 'remembrance.' As a sampler of tea time recipes, it is a nice introduction - though I would not recommend this book for those who are afternoon tea devotees, because the selections are very basic.

The attempt at wit does not quite work (and the clever and wry comments should always be a staple of a book about British cuisine.) The author seems to be trying to laugh at American insular ways, but it is a bit too 'folksy' to be funny.

The sampling of recipes is a nice introduction to afternoon tea (though I would shudder to think anyone would accept the author's suggestion of allowing the substitution of sparkling water or lemonade for tea - is nothing sacred?) :) The sandwich selection is small but very inexpensive and quick to prepare. Baking selections, including several varieties of scones, are more diverse and should satisfy those with a love for the art.

This is by no means a book for the tea afficianado, but I have given it a four star rating because it is a very good value.

I collect cookbooks and love to find ones with great recipes as this one does. However, it needs more illustrations or graphics.
