Taking Tea for Business and Pleasure

By Dorothea Johnson & Bruce Richardson

Introduction by Norwood Pratt


Afternoon tea conjures up feelings of elegance and gentility. It is, after all, synonymous with civility and blessed with the endearing quality of being just a touch highbrow. The customs and courtesies associated with this most civilized ceremony, however, are disquieting to the uninitiated. Fear of committing "tea faux pas" is on the upturn, as tea is now serving not only a social function, but a professional one as well-an alternative to the business lunch or dinner. This has created an unprecedented demand for learning the essentials of tea etiquette as executives meet in hotel lounges to discuss business over a cup of tea.

This book includes tea history, tea and health information, steeping guides, as well as elements of both social and business tea etiquette. The authors have given you all the information needed to either serve or be served at a host of tea occasions.
