New Tea Book?

I was visiting the Bigelow Tea Website when I came across this book I've never seen before, Tea at Glenbrooke. The cover is lovely, not of course that we would judge a book by that, and Robin Jones Gunn is a delightful author. It appears to have been published in 2001, but I've not seen it in any stores or tearooms.

Have any of you read this book yet?
There are quite a few other fun things on their website ( How football and tea mix, though, I'd rather not find out. Must have been a Super Bowl thing.
Of course, I must admit to visiting Harney & Sons Fine Teas website as well. (

Isn't this teacup lovely? It's $6.00 price makes it even nicer, though it does not appear to have a saucer in the pictures. I like saucers.

I'll be making a pot of this tea tomorrow in honor of the week of L*O*V*E*. I love Valentines Day. I thought I'd make my valentines this year, but it somehow didn't happen and I'm hoping to just get cards out in the mail in the morning. Maybe addressing the final few with a cup of Valentines Blend (chocolate & rose) Tea will help.

Hi Kimberly!!
I have this book and I LOVE it!!! Not only are the pictures beyond lovely, but the way she writes is phenomenal. Truly, when I read the book (and continue to read it), she makes me feel like I am there with her enjoying exactly what she's describing at that moment.

There are heart warming stories, poems, lovely pictures, menus and easy to follow recipes. All important in a great book, in my opinion. :)

I'm glad that you shared about the Valentine's tea! I have never seen that before. I will have to keep my eyes open for it. :)

Happy Valentine's Day Kimberly. Chocolate Rose Tea!! OMGosh!! It doesn't get any better than that. I just have to have some. I can already imagine the aroma of that blend. Thanks so much for the links.

I wonder how Sabine always knows when someone posts on Bigelow. It's funny. I've seen her comment on several other peoples' blogs whenever they write about Bigelow. :)

Mrs. U-Thanks for the imput. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Kelli- I didn't order the teacup as it does not include the saucer and I really don't need any more cups! Wouldn't it make a cute candle? ;)

Betty Jo- The taste of the tea is subtle, not overpowering like some flavored teas, but the aroma is heavenly. It smells as good and you're imagining it does! (I made another pot of it today. MMM!)

Hi! I have this book and it is lovely inside and out! I can see it displayed on my book shelf from here. This is my first time to your blog. I'll be back for a visit soon!
Blessings, Patty
