dear teatime

Cherry Garibaldi Biscuits from British Issue Hello! I’d like to try the Cherry Garibaldi Biscuits recipe on page 55 of the July/August issue and want to check about what I think may be an error. Should the instruction to stir in the cherries (it appears before the instruction to add the cream and milk) be removed? Based on the introduction to the recipe, it sounds like the cherries should just be scattered over the dough, as described later in the recipe? JENNY BAGDIGIAN Stow, MA Dear Jenny, We apologize for the confusion about when to incorporate the dried cherries for the Cherry Garibaldi Biscuits. The truth is, we tested the recipe both ways and had very good results with both methods. However, we did not intend for both methods to appear in print. The photograph…

begin your teatime on the right note

Before I began my tea profession, I was a choral conductor and baritone soloist for 22 years. Music was my vocation—my “calling”—and a pathway for channeling my artist’s spirit. Most of all, music provided a passport to a world filled with magnificent ideas and experiences. It wasn’t long before the tea ritual infused my life, as it became a companion on my musical journey. I eventually put down my baton and picked up a teacup for my new vocation in the world of tea.

Pianists and harpists would serenade diners from the parlor, or a guitarist/singer would stroll through the dining rooms. I would…
