Details: Product Description Who would not want to sit down with Jane Austen and join her in a cup of tea? Here for the first time is a book that shares the secrets of one of her favorite rituals. Tea figures prominently in Jane Austen's life and work. At the center of almost every social situation in her novels one finds tea. In Emma, does Miss Bates drink coffee? Of course not: 'No coffee, I thank you, for me-never take coffee.-A little tea if you please.' In Pride and Prejudice, what is one of the supreme honors Mr. Collins can envision Lady Catherine bestowing on Elizabeth Bennet and her friends? Why, drinking tea with her, naturally. Tea with Jane Austen begins with tea drinking in the morning and ends with tea in the evening, at balls and other gatherings. Each chapter includes a description of how tea was taken at a particular place or time of day, along with history, recipes, excerpts from Austen's novels and letters and illustrations from the time. About the Author KIM WILSON is an award-winning author, speaker, editor, tea lover, culinary historian, gardening enthusiast, and a passionate lover of the works and world of Jane Austen.

A popular speaker, Kim regularly gives entertaining and inspiring lectures to audiences at conferences, corporate events, museums, botanical gardens, cultural centers, historic sites, literary festivals, bookstores, libraries, literary societies, and garden clubs nationwide.
