We have three copies on offer so enter now!

Teatimes isn't just about the beverage itself but the many associated traditions, ephemera and cultural differences. It's a fascinating insight into how tea and teatimes have become an integral part of everyday lives as well as a special event and way of socialising around the world.

Tea arrived in Britain in the 1650s and was soon established as the beverage of choice in all the classes of the day and each had their preferred own dishes to suit, many of which remain to this day.

From the sophisticated salons de thé of Paris with their exquisite patisserie to the drover in Australian outback with his accompanying damper, tea became the mainstay of our daily rituals. The First Nations of Canada were also imbibing their own versions of tea.

Teatimes: A World Tour is easy to read and encompasses the historic aspects of the traditions along with images of the art and ephemera of the times.

Britain, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are featured along with South Africa and the quite different traditions and dishes of Asia and the sub-continent, all making an absorbing read.

Of course, it's important to be able to taste the journey as you go so the Recipes section not only tells you how to re-create some of the iconic dishes from each of the regions covered, it also explains some of the many and varied ways of preparing this versatile beverage.
