come for tea

“How did you get interested in tea?” That’s a question I’m often asked, but it’s also one I frequently pose when writing articles for the magazine. Usually, the response the interviewee gives involves a wonderful family tradition passed along by parents or grandparents. If that resonates with you, why not honor those who instilled this love of teatime in you with an afternoon tea? Mothers, grandmothers, and girlfriends will enjoy our Tiffany Tea (page 22) and our Gazebo Tea (page 42). The men in your life will appreciate a manly menu in a setting where bow ties serve as napkin rings (page 33). If you prefer to give them something they can unwrap, we have several excellent his-and-hers selections in Necessary Things on page 13, not to mention our staff’s…

dear teatime

A Sisterly Celebration In your September/October 2014 issue you had a great article on Michigan tearooms. This article has given me one of the most special experiences I could ever have hoped for. My sister and I were both born in September, and she retired in September of 2016. I used the article to find a very nice tearoom to take her and two friends to lunch. We had a great time, and we now have a great memory we share. We will be trying other tearooms now that we know where they are. Thank you for the great birthday experience!

the ritual of tea

My wife and I have found great delight this year in introducing our 2-year-old grandson to the ritual of tea. Whether green, strawberry, or black with lots of milk, Davis is enthralled with all the tea families and takes great pleasure in pouring the beverage from his tiny teapot into his porcelain cup with the giraffe handle. He gives the monkey-handled cup to Pop-Pop (that’s me). Never mind that much of the tea flows down the giraffe’s neck and into the saucer before he can halt the pour; these are skills that will come as his small hands coordinate with his eyes and brain. For now, we are thrilled that Davis is in love with his budding tea ritual. The ritual of tea, in its myriad forms, has been re-enacted for…
