"I wrote this book to extol the pleasures of my own habit of afternoon tea in the hope of drawing others into it."

"Wars have been waged, royal marriages arranged, companies formed, and world problems solved over a perfect cup of tea. It's neither inebriating, expensive, nor fattening, and yet there's nothing quite so effective for regaining one's equilibrium and perspective—or simply relaxing." 

Who could argue with that?

In this beautiful book, Lady Patricia Farmer—whose mother introduced her to the ritual of afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel's Palm Court when she was just seven years old—offers us the last word on the subject. Patty discusses the fascinating history of tea, the nuances which accompany tea’s many varieties, effective preparation techniques which will give you the very best cup, delicious tea recipes, and so much more!

Featuring commentary by a host of experts and dozens of fun facts and entertaining anecdotes, Tea Under the Palms is meant to be savored and revisited—like the ritual it so joyously celebrates.
