Tea with a Twist

In case you haven't heard, there's a new book out called Tea with a Twist. I had a gift card waiting for special use, and this was a good choice for it. The book is full of very lovely photography (by Lauren Rubinstein) and eight creative tea party themes (by Lisa Boalt Richardson). Topics include a Flower Power Tea, a Bubble Tea, a Mexican Fiesta Tea and so on. My favorite tea party theme is an Under the Table Tea. My favorite recipe idea is scones with green chiles.

Have you read the book? What are your thoughts?

If you're looking for a copy, Marmalady's may have a few left.

Thanks for mentioning Marmalady's. I do have several copies. It's a great book. The photography is wonderful. When I talked to Lisa at the WTE, she said it was in the works for 7 years. I think it shows alot of thought went into it.
