editor’s letter

come for tea As you picked up this issue, I hope you noticed something a little different about it. I hinted in our previous issue that there would be a “huge surprise” coming in this one. Not only is this our 100th regular issue, but it also has 100 pages. That isn’t just to celebrate our centennial issue, though it certainly is serendipitous. I am delighted to share that TeaTime will sport 100 pages from now on! All of us who have a part in producing the magazine are very excited that we will have more space for our beautiful photography and to tell more stories of the fascinating people and places whose lives and work revolve around tea. We are also pleased to give more space to Our Favorites and…

100 issues and counting

I am proud to say that my relationship with TeaTime magazine began in June 2003 when publisher Phyllis Hoffman DePiano, then-editor Barbara Cockerham, art director Yukie McLean, and photographer Mac Jamieson visited Elmwood Inn. For two days, they photographed our Kentucky tearoom for a story that would appear in the charter issue. They chronicled our tea celebration beautifully and went behind the scenes to document the secret to making English scones, steeping tea, and crafting tea foods for a modern tea audience. Since then, I have contributed 75 Perfect Cup columns, 16 travelogues, and nearly 200 photographs to help fill the pages of the first 100 issues. While contemplating this milestone edition, I perused many early issues to understand how much the American tea culture has changed over 17 years. America was…
