Indulge Yourself in Sweet Victorian Temptations!
"Time for Tea" means more than just grabbing a
quick moment to pour yourself a beverage. It means--
- Time to relax...
- Time to enjoy...
- Time to take a break from life's frantic pace
- Time to refresh and renew...
- Time to gather with friends...
- Time to put down the cell phone and the tablet
and all those things with batteries, and take a
moment to recharge your own batteries...
- Time for you!
A Victorian tea was more than just a meal. It was a
special time, a time of quiet celebration. It was a
moment to be shared with friends, or with your
loved ones... and sometimes, just a chance to be alone
to relax with your thoughts and dreams.
It was also, to be honest, a time to nibble on some
truly delicious, sinfully sweet delicacies. Many of
the tea-time treats and desserts that made their
debut in Victorian times remain so popular that
you'll still find them in British tearooms today --
and now you can bring them to your own table!
