“…A 10 – Charms with beauty, information, and warmth.” — A.W.


“ … Celtic Teas With Friends is written in a style that keeps you NOT wanting to put it down! Hugh Harrison's illustrations throughout the book are delightful and such a visual pleasure. The recipes for each month's theme have already produced a grocery shopping list in my home tonight and my head is dancing with new tea party ideas from her pages.” — M.E.

“It is a gorgeous book, I love the colors, the artistry, the inner cover collage, and of course the content. There is so much valuable information in Elizabeth's book, that it will take a while to digest it all. For now, I'm content with picking it up, reading another chapter, and gleaning new ideas.” — N. R.

“The inside is filled with "where do I start first" goodies, including a foreword by Norwood, bless 'im. The first tea party Elizabeth writes about is one that I have used to celebrate my own birthday, which is on the day she mentions. The book is one anyone will use often, with recipes from Nancy Reppert and Bruce Richardson, among others. . . I can recommend this book to one and all.” — E. H.

“… such an attractive and intelligent book.”
— M.C.

“The new Celtic book is lovely – illustrations well done and enhance the text- anyone interested in Celts – tea - or entertaining will surely buy the book once they see it and hold it- the size is perfect, too . . . you have found a niche and worked so hard to fill it, ‘tis grand!” — L.G.

“It was a real joy reading on our long trip back home. So many neat and informative things, with menu ideas and recipes and music.” — C.

“I am really enjoying Elizabeth Knight's new book, "Celtic Teas with Friends"!! I like everything about it -- from the way the cover art and dust cover match (I've always liked that in books!), to the pretty endpapers with their illustrations of clover, thistle, a kitty, a crow (made me think of Holly!) and daffodils; to the intriguing monthly tea party ideas with lots of history and recipes, to . . . well, I just like all KINDS of stuff about this book! I'm charmed by it, and plan to order a couple of autographed copies to send to tea friends. Thank you, Elizabeth, for creating such a wonderful new creation — I hope that you have more interesting, tea-themed new books bubbling up (I always think of creativity as something that bubbles) to publish in the future!” — C.W.

“The book is absolutely lovely, and so educational. It must have been a real labor of love. Just fascinating!” — D. LeC.

Just a quick note to let you know that your books arrived in Alberta, Canada promptly and in great shape. On a quick perusal, I see that they are exactly what I had expected, but also much, much more. The wealth of information is amazing. I am very excited to make good use of them. Please keep up the research; I look forward to more great tea books from you.
— S. H.

We are enjoying every page and suggestion. It is a wonderful tea book but then we have learned to expect only the best from you.
