dear teatime

As we strolled back through the forest, I scanned the pages: this has been a spectacular TeaTime year, but I think you outdid yourself with Sept/Oct! Every spread showcases lovely table-scapes and recipes and resources. The feature on Grandma Rae was especially interesting, as I am also a seamstress. As we strolled, I spotted a bush loaded with wild huckleberries—I used the magazine mailing sleeve to hold them and will use the berries in your ‘Fruit-filled Goodness’ recipe when I host October Book Club and a ‘Forest Friends’ tea.” MICHELLE PARNELL ROHRER via email Recipe Testing “Love your magazine—have been getting it since I fell in love with my first issue…

Time after time, they would say, “You know, we never drink hot tea, but we consumed two full pots this afternoon!

Thirty years later, and amid a pandemic, we can see how deeply tea has immersed in our culture. As…
