Tea parties making a comeback

Marie Claire reported that, after years of sagging popularity, afternoon teas are making a comeback in the United Kingdom. During the last week of April, Tesco, the UK’s top supermarket chain reports increased sales of teas and teapots, as well as cream cakes, a traditional European tea treat.

Even in the United States, the popularity of teas as a social occasion (as well as a drink) is on the upswing according to Netscape Celebrity.

There, a recent article features the new book “Tea Party” by author Tracy Stern. Among the great ideas presented is this little gem: “If you own a variety of teacups but not a complete set, use glass plates to mix and match for a modern-vintage look.”
