Everything I Know I Learned Over Tea is a beautifully illustrated book with neat "teaisms." Emilie Barnes gives origins of tea, short stories dealing with tea times and quotes about tea from famous people. You don't have to like tea to enjoy this book. If you enjoy comfort books that you can read on any afternoon to relax, then this is a great book to have. To be honest I love this book for its illustrations! The paintings by Susan Rios are pop-out-of the book beautiful. This is also a great gift book. By the way, do you enjoy tea? Hot or cold? And what flavor? As the Mad Hatter said, "It's always tea-time."
