Take A Little Time For Tea
A Brief Retreat with Tea
"The whistle of the teapot announces that a moment of reflection and relaxation is just around the corner. The gentle clatter of your favorite teacup settling onto its saucer invites a measure of anticipation. As the amber liquid makes its way into the cup, a soft wisp of steam wafts through the air and signals that a sweet period of respite and solitude and solitude is about to envelop you. Curl up with your favorite book, throw an afghan over your lap, and treasure these precious minutes as you take a little time for tea." -Kathy Hatch, Take a Little Time for Tea
This is a charming and beautiful book! There are lovely tea recipes and reflections on taking tea, beautiful tea artwork and sweet tea quotes.
