A charming book about the author’s Lancashire family’s tea heritage, the history of tea drinking and tea traditions in the UK—afternoon tea, high tea, and cream tea. Transplanted to Ontario in the 1960s, genealogist and local history librarian Frances Hoffman tells us of the history of tea drinking by all levels of society in Ontario, and her own explorations to favourite tea rooms. Finally, instructions for brewing the many varieties of tea and making the treats to go with them (no less that five scone recipes) round out the book. Go put the kettle on.
