No ritual matches the restorative powers of afternoon tea, a time to share, sip, and nibble a diversity of dainty and delicious treats. Celebrating the civilized ritual for the ninth year, The Collectible Teapot & Tea Calendar features a dozen rare and lovely teapots photographed in sumptuous settings of flowers and teatime treats. Exquisite 18th-century Worcester, a cheery T. G. Green polka-dot pot, and Colonial-era silver culled from museums and private collections, each pot comes with an intriguing story to match its delightful design and decoration. With history and lore by food writer and tea connoisseur Joni Miller and transporting photographs by Martin Brigdale.

Sit down for afternoon tea, that convivial daily interlude filled with gossip and camaraderie, soothing ritual, and cakes. Presiding over every tea table, of course, is the teapot, setting the mood with whimsy or majesty, elegant understatement or floral exuberance. The Collectible Teapot & Tea Calendar features a year of rare and beautiful teapots photographed in lovely teatime settings. A romantic pink 1893 Royal Worcester is perfect for a heartfelt rendezvous for two. Emily Post's own favorite 1910 Calyx Ware set welcomes friends to a very proper tea. Accompanying each month's setting are morsels of history and lore from food writer Joni Miller.From the Back Cover:
Ritual, refreshment, a way of life, teatime is an interlude that invigorates the spirit. For 2008, The Collectible Teapot & Tea Calendar presents a year of beautiful vintage teapots arranged in lovely teatime settings. A romantic gilded Miles Mason teapt from 1805 will set hearts aflutter on Valentine's Day. A 1780 Worcester pot, decorated with Chinese and Japanese motifs, is the perfect choice for a supremely civilized tea. And it doesn't get any more playful than a 1950s Carlton Ware squirrel teapot. Accompanying Martin Brigdale's photographs is delectable history and lore from teapot collector and writer Joni Miller.
