Tea Time–Blue & White Issue

If you love tea time and blue and white china, then you won’t want to miss the latest issue of Tea Time Magazine.

IMG_0479The July/August 2013 issue is filled with great features, articles, recipes and photos. 

IMG_0480I’ve always been a predominantly black tea drinker, so this page featuring teas from several companies and the beautiful blue & white china cups and saucers was great.


The photos are lovely and there are lots of ideas for birthday teas, tea on the porch and much more.

IMG_0482Many of the recipes in this issue appealed to me, including Chilled Succotash Salad and Tomato-Feta Tarts.  There were lots of recipes for yummy sweets like Key Lime Shortbread Tarts, Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Cookies and Strawberries and Cream Scones.

IMG_0483If you relish learning about the history of tea, you’ll  enjoy the article by Jane Pettigrew on the British tea-dance revival.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this issue of one of my “favorite” magazines.  Hopefully, things will settle down for a while (no vacations, family weddings or health issues) and I can get back to visiting all my blogger friends.  ☺

I'm looking forward to getting my copy which is usually delivered a week or two after my US friends receive theirs.
Blue and white china is so pretty, makes for a nice collection.

I got mine last week and like you, am thoroughly enjoying it! I thought the Tomato-Feta Tarts were a unique spin on a teatime savory -- and I think I have the little pans to make them like that. Cheers to blue and white!

It is a nice blue and white issue for sure. That tomato tart does look tempting to make.

I loved this blue and white issue. I'm slowly catching up on blog and magazine reading after travels.

I love this issue too! Reminds me of when Victoria used to do those blue and white issues ... in fact, I think I'll go fetch some of them!

Hello, I have enjoyed reading your blog and have recently started trying out a variety of teas and I was wondering if you knew of a good place other tea drinkers go to review and just socialize about the tea they have tried?
