Time For Tea

Series 169 · Episode 11

Proverbs, poems, books and films have all been written about or dedicated to tea. The American writer, Henry James (1843–1916), said ‘There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as Afternoon Tea.’ Well, I think I must have been born in the wrong century. Whether it is to wake up in the morning, a mid-morning cup while the boys are at school, or an afternoon with friends and their children, I can always put some time aside to sit (most of the time!) and have a cup of tea, and what better excuse is there to have some cake too!
