Novelty of the Tea-Party


In honor of National Hot Tea Month,
and in anticipation of spring,
I'm posting this delightful quote ~


"Another novelty is the tea-party, an extraordinary meal in that, being offered to persons that have already dined well, it supposes neither appetite nor thirst, and has no object but distraction, no basis but delicate enjoyment."


Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste
