lmost every little girl
loves to play "tea par-
ty" with her young
friends or perhaps just some
well-behaved dolls who pa-
tiently sit and watch as make-
believe tea is poured and
imaginary cakes are served.
But, for some reason, when
American children grow up,
we tend to forget about this
charming and relaxing cus-
tom that is a long-standing
English tradition. Granted,
several luxury hotels
throughout the United States
have revived "afternoon tea"
—usually served between 3
p.m. and 6 p.m. — in their
large lobbies. And small tea
shops, patterned after the
popular British institutions,
have even popped up around
the country. But we still don't
think of "taking tea" as a way
to entertain guests at home.
Recently, I came across a
delightful new cookbook that
convincingly explains how a
tea party can be an enjoyable
and satisfying way to cele-
brate many special occasions.
While perusing The Pleasures
of Afternoon Tea by Angela
Hymes, it occurred to me that
a formal tea party would be
absolutely perfect for
Mother's Day.
As Hymes points out, a tea
party requires much less ex-
pense and fuss than most
other kinds of parties or com-
pany meals. If Dad and the
children are so inclined,
homemade baked goods
would be ideal to serve at a
tea party, and would certain-
ly make Mom feel quite
special. However, dainty
cakes and cookies purchased
from a good bakery, light
sandwiches, or cut-up fresh
fruit (such as strawberries
with some whipped cream)
would also be quite suitable.
What is typically served at
a British afternoon tea?
Hymes — a native of Man-
chester, England who has
lived in the United States
since 1979 — explains that

the fare is quite flexible and
can include cookies, petits
fours, crackers, light sand-
wiches and other "savories,"
scones, buns, muffins, pies,
pastries, cake or fresh fruit.
She explains that care should
be given to details to ensure
that the tea party stands out
above ordinary afternoon
snacks.
For instance, the best china
and cloth napkins should be
used, and the tea should be
brewed at the table in a cer-
amic or glass teapot. Accord-
ing to Hymes, it is much bet-
ter to use loose tea in the pot,
or perhaps a metal "tea ball,"
than teabags.
She suggests choosing an
interesting type of tea such as
Earl Grey or Darjeeling, both
of which are packaged by sev-
eral different companies. In
The Pleasures of Afternoon
Tea, Hymes describes several
types of green and black tea.
She also gives explicit direc-
tions on the best way to make
a pot of tea, and how to store
any leftover tea leaves.
The food served at a tea par-
ty should be displayed in an
attractive manner on the best
serving pieces available. Good
quality paper doilies can add
elegance to less elaborate
platters. Tea can be taken in
the living room, family room,
or formal dining room, but
preferably not in the kitchen.
Soft, classical music in the
background will do much for
the ambience, and encourage
a relaxed feeling. Afternoon
teas should be peaceful and
sedate with a touch of digni-
ty — just the thing to delight
(and surprise!) many usually
harried moms.
In her book, Hymes pre-
sents the interesting history
of tea, and tells how tea par-
ties in America suffered a ma-
jor setback when colonial
revolutionaries disavowed tea
drinking after their big tea
party in Boston harbor. She
also explains the difference
between afternoon tea and
"high tea" (the latter being a
full meal taken in the early
