The illustrated introduction by Marika Hanbury Tenison describes when and how tea came to Europe and how the idea of a meal called 'afternoon tea' came about. The characteristics of the many varieties of tea and the development of the china we associate with tea are discussed. Receipes for all kinds of afternoon tea fare are given, from heavy bread and cakes to delicate sandwiches and Cornish clotted cream to salmon spread. Many traditional recipes, such as Widecombe, Fair gingerbread, Cornish fairings and Honiton apple cake, are also included.
