There is something basic and honest and good about tea.
 But, there is something absolutely magical about tea-time.

And, Tea-Time at the Inn lets us create our own fantasy tea-time by giving us different kinds of "teas" to make at home. These tea parties hail from Inns across America and run the gamut from A White Linen Tea to A Mystery Tea. Forty Inns have been selected for the teas they give. Each Inn has graciously shared their recipes and tips for preparations. How about a Gone with the Wind Tea featuring:

Rhetts's Chocolate bars

Miss Melanie's Chocolate Strawberries

Ashley's Almond Filled Cookie Cake

Red Petticoat Swiss Jellyroll

Katie's Kahlua Fudge

Belle Watling's Midnight Chocolate Cake

Twelve Oaks Almond Tuiles.

Of course, you must hand each lady a fan as they enter your tea room and offer each gentleman a cigar. If you don't want to make the tea yourself you can visit Tara: A Country Inn in Pennsylvania and they will gladly serve you at 4:00 p.m. It would be great fun to spend a little time, tea-time, at each of the Inns in this book. The photos of the Inns and the recipes are terribly enticing.

About the only thing missing is the tea recipes themselves. There are only a few mentioned.  I guess any good stiff tea made in water just to the boil and served in a china cup will do. It certainly is a start.
