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 Britain’s 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 Britain’s 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.
