come for tea

Autumn is a season many of us eagerly anticipate. For some, it’s a welcome reprive from summer’s scorching temperatures. For others, it’s the time of year that ushers in wonderful seasonal produce like apples and pumpkins, accompanied by fragrant spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. In addition to celebrating Halloween, we shouldn’t forget to mark Grandparents’ Day (September 13) and the beautiful Harvest Moon (September 27) on our afternoon-tea calendars. In this issue, you’ll find an abundance of autumnal inspirations—all perfect for teatime. This is also the season for tea festivals around the United States and Canada. I so enjoy attending many of them, either as an exhibitor or a speaker (or both!), and meeting many TeaTime readers. It is truly gratifying to hear how much you enjoy the magazine. It…

dear teatime

July/August 2015 issue What a wonderful surprise to open the July/August 2015 issue to find my grandmother’s Blue Danube cup and saucer! Then to see the cover picture on the Facebook page!

the beauty of the gaiwan

If I could own but one vessel for steeping tea, it would be a simple Chinese gaiwan—preferably porcelain and, if given a choice of sizes, always diminutive. I was reminded of its elegance on a recent trip to London where Juyan Webster made cup after cup of tea for me in her shop, The Chinese Tea Company, on Portobello Road. Her infuser of choice was a beautifully decorated porcelain gaiwan. With all the electronic tea makers on the market, consumers can easily spend more than $100 for a tea-dispensing machine that brews a cup of tea in less than a minute, but I like the old-fashioned simplicity of the gaiwan. Since the Ming dynasty, this humble three-piece tea bowl has been used to coax the subtle aromas from delicate white, green,…
