Who In The Book World Would You Want To Have A Tea Party With?
Obviously, they have to be British. Who else would have a proper tea party? The Japanese, I suppose, do a fine tea party but they seem less likely to have cakes and sandwiches with the crusts cut off and scones which is what I’d really be looking for in a tea party.
Speaking of which, if you like tea stuff, check out Kelly Michelle on Twitter. She is all about gluten free tea parties in England and she makes me so jealous. I want to travel around having high tea and we just don’t have that here. She isn’t a book blogger but she gets to pick the place for tea.
At my party we’ll be drinking Pump Room Blend tea. I’ve never been a big fan of hot tea because it tastes like dirty hot water to my uncultured American palate but then we went to the Pump Room in Bath and had this. Amazing. I was scared to order it because I figured that I wouldn’t make it right and it would taste horrible but it still tastes great.
