In Teatimes: A World Tour food historian Helen Saberi takes us on a journey into the fascinating history of teatimes, from elegant afternoon teas, hearty high teas and delicious cream teas, to cricket and tennis teas, the funeral teas of Britain and much more - plus tea gardens, tea dances, tea gowns and tearooms.
The reader is invited to spend time in the sophisticated salons de the of Paris and the homely tearooms of the United States, and to enjoy the teatime traditions of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, where housewives prided themselves on their `well-filled tins'.
The tea parties of the Raj and Irani cafes in India, teatimes along the Silk Road where the samovar and chaikhana reign supreme, the tasty dim sum of China and the intricate tradition of cha kaiseki of Japan are all included in this sumptuous book.
Featuring appealing illustrations as well as recipes from around the world, Teatimes shows how tea drinking has become a global obsession, from American iced tea and Taiwanese bubble tea through to the now-classic English afternoon tea.
