come for tea

Afternoon tea came into vogue in England during the time of Queen Victoria and has been attributed to Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, a lady-in-waiting to the queen. Because the evening meal was typically served late, Lady Bedford reportedly had a light snack along with a cup of tea in the afternoon and soon began inviting friends to join her. Happily for all of us who enjoy having tea, the practice caught on. Last year, the wedding of Britain’s Price Harry and American actress Meghan Markle captivated many Anglophiles. What they may have not realized is that her first meeting with Queen Elizabeth was for afternoon tea in Buckingham Palace. To prepare for that important debut, Meghan visited Rose Tree Cottage in Pasadena, California. Its owners, the ever-charming Englishman Edmund…

dear tea time

Devotees of TeaTime “I think I’ve had a subscription to TeaTime magazine almost since it began! It has always been my escape to a gentler and more refined environment.

I come from a long line of Irish storytellers. My great-grandmother emigrated from Ireland to America in 1897, and the stories have been flowing ever since. Of all the places I’ve wandered across the pond, I fell most in love with a walled town in County Limerick. That idyllic place inspired me to create the setting of my Irish Village Mystery series, where Siobhán O’Sullivan investigates crimes, wrangles her five kooky siblings, and helps run her family’s local bistro. Ireland is full of colorful phrases and slang. Like all languages, some phrases are particular to certain counties. Some are also used in the UK. Here are a few of my favorites, which I first heard in Irish pubs and uttered by Irish friends, and now appear in The Irish Village Mystery…

about the author

Carlene O’Connor is the USA Today best-selling author of the Irish Village Mystery series, which was inspired by a walled town in County Limerick. In the series, she has renamed the town and nudged it over to County Cork, just so the folks in the real town wouldn’t get browned off. In the latest Irish Village Mystery, Murder in an Irish Pub, competing card sharks stir up Siobhán O’Sullivan’s quiet Irish village as a poker tournament turns into a game of hangman.
