come for tea

Autumn is upon us once again, and with it comes the gorgeous hues of changing foliage along with the ever-so-pleasant cooler temperatures, which usher in the tea parties and tea festivals of the season.

And if cooking or baking with tea strikes your fancy, you’ll delight in “Teatime for Tea Lovers” (page 37), which incorporates tea into every recipe of this inventive afternoon-tea menu.

A Beloved Magazine “TeaTime magazine is my favorite magazine! One of my favorite segments is ‘The Tea Experience’ that shows photos and tells the story of how the shop owners began their tearooms.

in search of oriental beauty

The road from Taipei rises ever higher into the mountains of Taiwan’s Hsinchu County as it wanders through forest-covered hills and beside deep valleys dotted with occasional homes and farms clinging to the mountainside. I came to Taiwan on a mission. I was in search of the source of one of the world’s most mysterious teas—a bug-bitten oolong indigenous to these mountains and known to tea connoisseurs as Oriental Beauty. May was about to become June, and rising temperatures were nudging tiny leafhoppers to begin their annual feasting on succulent, young tea plants. Nocturnal by nature, these cricket-like insects swiftly leap, fly, nibble, and hide throughout the tea garden.
