come for tea

As springtime turns to summer, our thoughts turn to celebrations associated with the months of May and June. And what better way to mark these occasions than with afternoon tea? Our cheery May Day Tea (page 31), complete with maypole-inspired cupcakes, will delight the young and the young at heart. To honor the moms in your life, we offer a lovely menu for Mother’s Day (page 39), which will, undoubtedly, be one of the best gifts they’ve ever received.

infuse tea into your wedding celebration

Every bride dreams of adding unforgettable touches to her wedding celebration that will create memories for years to come. And what could be more memorable for both the bride and her guests than a tea blended especially for the joyous occasion?
