An online guide to afternoon tea. I stumbled upon this wonderful blog (Downton Abbey Cooks ~ Great food has a history) by a woman who is “a cook and historian fascinated by the fine, yet simple food of the post Edwardian period of Downton Abbey”. I love the idea of afternoon tea and I love that she posts about my favorite show-Downton Abbey.

Every week I host Tea Tuesday, a virtual tea party which was inspired by Christine, a follower who lives in France, who was curious about English tea traditions. The British may have failed miserably in other culinary areas, but they excel in the tea ritual. Each Tuesday, I dish on Downton Abbey and share other topical tea issues one might discuss at tea, served up with a tea treat with a history.
The Online Guide will be updated weekly as I add new recipes, so bookmark and return to whenever you are looking for tea history and new recipe ideas.
