Tea with Jane Austen
Tea with Jane Austen | Kim Wilson
11 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 14 to read
While to us tea is an everyday commodity, in Austen's time it was relatively expensive, and to be able to offer it to visitors implied some degree of social status. This book examines the social customs of the time, and includes recipes.

Some cozy reading and a little crocheting on this very cold evening. Now I need to make some tea...☕

Sace That yarn is beautiful! 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Sace I know right? I ♥ it! It's Puddle Jumper by The Sheepy Shire. 1mo
Sace Oh the yarn name and store name just adds to the beauty! 1mo
Sace The picture makes it look like the yarn and book cover a slightly color coordinated. 1mo
bookandbedandtea Your photo is lovely and this book sounds wonderful. Happy crocheting! 1mo

Admittedly, I‘m unfamiliar with the term #chippytea . But, as per usual, there‘s a Jane Austen related book for a prompt! Wilson offers tea related recipes, quotes, and history insights into all things tea in Austen‘s novels and in her world. It‘s a treat! #redroseseptember

Cinfhen I KNOW this is a MUST for @LeahBergen and @CrowCAH 3mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen aye, tis already part of the Jane Austen themed books on the shelf! 3mo

Had some “Inspired by Jane Austen” tea in my Jane Austen mug! ❤️ #MakerSwap

sprainedbrain You are living the best Jane life. 😂 1y
aschermetz How is the tea? I debated getting this flavor for myself too, hahaha. 1y
CrowCAH @sprainedbrain yup! ☺️📚 1y
CrowCAH @aschermetz not exactly my “cup of tea” (yes pun intended), but it‘s okay. It will help sooth my nerves with the lavender in there. Thanks! 1y
Nute I enjoy a WHOLE experience just like you. ‘This tea because of this mug!‘ Sometimes it‘s just the ambience of the moment. Enjoy! 1y

Afternoon Tea with hubby at The Drake, Chicago. #SomethingPretty #Riotgrams @bookriot

Lola I do tea there every year over the Christmas holiday, but I love it even more off-season when it isn't so crowded. And what a great day to be in the city! Enjoy! #springtimeinFebruary 3y
Godmotherx5 @Lola I enjoy it at Christmas, too. This was my first time going to tea in the off-season. This was my husband's first time ever. He was a good sport. 3y
