9780711231894: Tea with Jane Austen

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.

From the Author:

Jane Austen loved tea. She mentions tea so often in her novels and in her letters that I began to suspect that she was a true tea enthusiast. Sure enough, there, in one of her letters to her sister, are the telltale signs. "Let me know when you begin the new Tea," she writes eagerly. "I am still a Cat if I see a Mouse." Proof enough: Jane was an avid tea lover, ready to pounce on a really good cup of tea.

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 Sense and Sensibility, what is everyone drinking when Elinor notices Edward’s mysterious ring set with a lock of hair? Tea, of course. And 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.
