July/August 2009 Tea Time Magazine
As a magazine editor, I find that one of the nicest compliments I ever receive is when someone tells me they save every issue of our magazine. The only two magazines I have *every* issue of, besides the one I edit, are Victoria and Tea Time. Do you save *every* issue of any magazine(s)? If so, I'd love to hear your list!
I just got the latest Tea Time and found it to be one of the best in recent memory. But then perhaps I am simply smitten with the article titled "Just Peachy," which features recipes made with peaches. You know how sometimes all the teatime recipes in a book or magazine start to look alike? Well, this one has some that seem very fresh and original, like the Peach-Ricotta Tart with Rosemary-Cornmeal Crust and the Prosciutto-Wrapped Peaches with Spicy Glaze.
And you know how we have enjoyed exploring words like craf-tea, par-tea and sinceri-tea? Well, this issue of Tea Time offers a suggested menu for a "Novel-Tea" for our book-lover friends. I'm just sorry I didn't already think of that idea myself! The photo and recipe for the Chocolate and Pistachio Cookie Bookmarks is reason enough to get this issue, but then I think Tea Time is a must-read for tea lovers all the time.
