Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here's how it works..
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share does not give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author too so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Tea With Friends, Elizabeth Knight
'Next to acquiring good friends, the best acquisition is that of good books.' - Charles Caleb Colton
Pg. 4 - 'Afternoon tea, or low tea, was 'invented' by Anna Maria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford (1783 - 1857), one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting. In her day, the upper crust ate a huge breakfast, little lunch, and a very late dinner. Every afternoon, at about five o'clock, the duchess experienced a 'sinking feeling'.'
Pg. 23 - 'In olden days a tea made with ground ivy was drunk on April 8 as a protection against spring fever.'
I adore this book! What a pleasurable and informative read. I learned a great deal about tea, both the beverage and the ritual. Being an avid tea drinker - I take tea every day - I knew I would most likely enjoy this library find, but honestly, I think many readers would like this short book.
