come for tea

For many of us, there is something quite alluring about the French culture and language. And those of us who are also enamored with tea will be delighted to know there is much to explore in this charming European country. So much so, that we have devoted most of this issue to it. From the tea venues of the city of Nantes in western France to the salons of Paris, there are plenty of teatimes to savor when you visit. We have even carried the theme into the tea parties featured in this issue with our take on traditional French fare.

Yuletide Inspiration “I have been an avid reader of TeaTime magazine since 2004. I eagerly await to receive my magazine each month. The photos are beautiful, and the recipes are so enticing. Reading TeaTime takes me on an imaginary journey to a time and place of refinement and gracious living. I just made the Cinnamon Chip Scones featured in the November/ December 2017 issue. They look so delicious. . . .” CAROL NICKLE via e-mail “Being truly inspired by the Advent Tea article in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of TeaTime, I hosted an evening Advent Tea in my home for some close friends . . .

an introduction to french tea

Paris is a city that never disappoints me. Every arrondissement is a treasure chest waiting to be opened, sniffed, consumed, and remembered. I gaze longingly into boulangerie windows, wander through outdoor markets, and relish the daily menus hastily chalked onto boards posted outside cafés. Fortunately, it’s an easy city to walk. If you’re like me, you’ll need to burn off those decadent calories you consume while satisfying your hunger for the most delicious city in the world. The long climb up Montmartre from the Moulin Rouge to the cathedral Sacré-Coeur is one of the best workouts for shedding those buttery excesses.
