We are hosting a book and brew tea party on Tuesday 20 November to celebrate the launch of ‘The Great Book of Tea’, the latest release by renowned Yorkshire food journalist, Elaine Lemm.

‘The Great Book of Tea’ follows the successful release of ‘The Great Book of Yorkshire Pudding’ and ‘The Great Book of Rhubarb’.

Elaine will give a short talk on her new book and wax lyrical about her discovery of just how and why tea has become such a part of British life and how the resurgence of afternoon tea has seen spectacular growth in specialist teas, tea blenders and tea shops. Elaine will also demonstrate how to bake some of the delicious cake recipes featured.

We will also be joined by Ann Davis, owner of The Tea Experience, a Yorkshire based speciality tea company.  Ann, who has trained with international tea masters in London, specialises in unusual flowering teas and premium loose tea blends, as well as tea ware and gifts.  Guests will be introduced to a new range of teas made by Chinese artisans, known as Flowering Tea Blooms and will be able to enjoy the whole tea experience.

We hope you will join us to learn more about the tea we drink every day and try a new tea experience with the Flowering Tea Blooms. Guests will also learn new cake recipes to accompany our celebrated brew. The event will run between 10.30am and 12.30pm with tea and cake tasting and a book signing from Elaine.

The tea party is free of charge, however, places must be reserved ahead of the event. Please contact sara@countrywarmth.co.uk or call 01653 694699.
