About the Author

Brenda Williams

"The First Lady of Teas"

Brenda Williams was born and raised in England. She moved to Canada in 1966, and then to the United States (Denver, Colorado) in 1980. Three years later, Brenda opened a tearoom in Denver.

During her time in Colorado, she was on the board of  the Colorado Food Association, which was overseen by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Brenda also taught English Afternoon Tea classes for the Denver Free University. In 1989, she began manufacturing her own scone mix, preserves, lemon curd and stuffing mixes. These products were sold throughout the United States.

Brenda sold her Denver tearoom in 1996, and relocated to Surprise, Arizona, where she proudly offers Brenda's English Afternoon Tea served in your home.


Review of Brenda's book by:

Tea Room Guide www.tearoomguide.net

Brenda Williams may be living the sunbird’s life in Arizona these days, but you’d better believe that she’s British through and through. A former tea room owner, Brenda offers teas, accessories, British gourmet treats, and tea party packages for adults and children via her current business, Brenda’s English Teas. She is also the author of the next gift basket book on my list: A Spot of Tea ~ Brenda’s Afternoon Tea Primer.

This delightful little book clearly and concisely tells you everything you need to know to serve or partake of this most English of tea rituals. Each of the 25 pages is packed with etiquette, tips, and how-to’s, from preparing a proper pot of English tea and the required equipage, to how to hold a teacup and how to stir your tea (yes, there is a correct way to do each of these!). You’ll also find an outline of the basic types of teas, as well as the origins of tea and of afternoon tea itself. Brenda provides an afternoon tea menu and recipes for an array of tempting teatime tidbits.

Every copy of A Spot of Tea is presented charmingly with a teabag tucked inside the front cover — mine was Harrison & Crossfield’s Scottish Breakfast tea — to enjoy at your next English tea time. But what I appreciate most is that after you’ve finished reading this primer, you will never again be tempted to refer to afternoon tea as “high tea!”

I picked up the next two little tea books — gift basket books — last weekend when we visited Biltmore Estate for our fifteenth wedding anniversary. They were stocked in the Confectionery shop along with several types of packaged teas (most notably a selection from the not-so-distant Bigelow tea estate), a few teapots, mugs, and teaspoons, and some very yummy tea-flavoured hard candies.
