Tea Time is one of those magazines that I can hardly wait to purchase. It publishes 6 issues per year, and they are definitely worth waiting for. I even enjoy their ads.
Anything pertaining to tea can be found in its beautifully illustrated pages. They feature tea rooms, great decorating ideas, silver and bone china teapots and saucers, recipes, gorgeous table settings, historical information, places to visit, etc. Sometimes there will be interviews with authors or ideas for a theme tea party. You'll always find lots of beautiful teacups and teapots, scones and dessert recipes, and lovely table settings.
This issue for the holidays did not disappoint. It had lots of great recipes, an article about a Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice) tea party, highlights of a New York tea room, an interview with a cookbook author, ideas for a Boxing Day tea celebration, some great gift suggestions, a tea etiquette section, and on and on.
The ads contain lots of great resources for tea embellishments, from china teapots to silver trays, and every tea accessory in between. While I am not into formal teas, I still love to get great ideas from this magazine. It's worth the price just for the lovely pictures of food and tea sets.
