Fortnum & Mason has nearly as much experience of selling tea as Britain has of drinking it some three centuries worth, in fact, since the early eighteenth century.
Written by award-winning food writer, Tom Parker Bowles, Time for Tea is an expert and entertaining guide to tea from Fortnum & Mason. This accessible and comprehensive book whisks you through all the information you need to get the most out of your cuppa alongside plenty of delicious food pairings and recipes.
Discover the history behind Britains favourite drink, learn how to make the perfect brew and identify a wide range of teas to suit different tastes whether a single origin Darjeeling, contemporary cold brew infusion or Britains much-loved builder's brew. It also explores which teas are best to kick-start the day, revive the spirits or soothe at evening's end. Now, enough of the talk, it's Time for Tea.
