J'ai déjà laissé un petit commentaire ( en anglais ) à propos de ce livre , sur amazon.uk . Je tiens à recommander ce petit ouvrage tout à fait délicieux aux fans de Jane Austen ( dont , bien sûr , je fais partie ) et , aussi , aux amateurs de thé ! Il s'agit d'une étude très bien documentée et parfaitement divertissante sur la consommation du thé , en Angleterre , à l'époque Regency . Tous les commentaires et explications sont exposés et appuyés par des citations empruntées aux grands romans austeniens (" Breakfast with Mr Darcy " , " Tea for oppressed Heroines " , " Emma's Box Hill picnic and Captain Wentworth's Mess etc ... ) . Tout cela illustré de mannière tout à fait ravissante avec de belles photos en couleurs et de jolies reproductions de gravures d'époque . Sans parler des recettes qui peuvent être essayées . A ne pas manquer , vraiment!

The finer points of tea-making and the relevancy that it had for those who lived during Jane Austen’s time are described with a deep sense of appreciation in this introduction to the habit, as portrayed in the novelist’s own works and other writings. As Tom Carpenter (Trustee at Jane Austen’s House, Chawton) points out in his Foreword to this guide, “It is easy to pass over what may appear to be minor or peripheral description to the major story in Jane Austen’s novels, but as this book shows, there is frequent reference to this simple demonstration of hospitality that underpinned the expected social custom of the day.” Kim Wilson herself stresses that “At the center of almost every social situation in her novels one finds tea.”

Indeed, the passing of the day was marked by many during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries with the drinking of this beverage. Wilson broadens the scope of her work, however, beyond the scope of the novelist and her characters to show how the habit evolved across a broad swathe of society, and how the quality of tea that you drank, as well as the paraphernalia with which you drank it, was an indicator of your social standing.

Although we no longer tend to put such effort into our drinking of tea nowadays, with teabags being the standard order of the day for many, you do still find those who have aspirations to the ilk of Earl Grey and other more select teas, and tea is still one of the most commonly consumed hot liquids. Wilson caters for our needs in this respect, too, as she gives numerous recipes throughout the text of updated versions of, as well as the original recipes for, treats from the teatimes of Austen’s day.

Short and punchy book for tea drinkers and Janeites 6 octobre 2005
Par A. Woodley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a lovely short little book which will not only teach you how to make a good cup of tea but at the same time takes a lovely cultural walk through the historical significance of tea both in society and literature.

The Georgian era really saw the rise in tea as a social institution, which is of course the time of Austen. Kim Wilson manages to extract references to tea in novels and letters using them as examples of its importance at the time, and its use as a literary device.

this has a series of lovely recipes in it which are true to Austen's time, well as true as they can be. Ingredients and measurements not withstanding. But how wonderful to do tea just as Austen did.

This book is highly specialised around Tea and really Austen and perhaps the Jane Austen in the title was supposed to draw in more readers on the Jane Austen bandwagon. However I do think it has merit. Firstly it tended to stick with things of Austen's time and I felt it gave a fairly good discussion of what her life would have been.

It really suffered from lack of illustration, not only throughout the book, but also for the cooking items at the end. I recommend reading this with another illustrated book of Austen's life if you want to see more of the places and things mentioned in here. There is one excellent book I have read recently called Regency Design which (while not on Jane Austen) will illustrate so much of what they used, ate from, drank from and lived in. It is fully illustrated, I think the author is Morley - anyway - a book like that is an excellent accompaniment to lovely short books such as this.

Highly recommended 27 septembre 2005
Par A reader in Wisconsin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Before sitting down with this book, turn to the very last chapter, which explains how to make the perfect cup of tea -- and prepare a whole pot for yourself. Because once you begin reading Kim Wilson's engaging discussion, you'll want nothing so much as a good cup of tea (except, perhaps, a rout cake or Bath bun to go with it) but will not want to put the book down long enough to boil water. "Tea with Jane Austen" is like the best blends of the beverage, its individual components smoothly combining to create a delightful experience richer than the sum of its parts. Primarily a social history of tea in Georgian England, the book also explains how Austen and other authors use tea as a literary device, and includes period recipes with modern conversions. Though extensively researched, this is not dry history -- Wilson's warm, conversational style and gentle humor make the book as entertaining as it is informative. Indeed, the reader feels as if Wilson is our hostess rather than a lecturer as she educates us by turns on tea itself (how it was transported, sold, and prepared) and the social contexts in which it was enjoyed. She also enhances our appreciation for Austen's writings by revealing subtle cues Austen incorporates into tea-drinking scenes that likely escape most modern readers -- but that her contemporaries would have recognized as character-defining elements. Among the many fascinating insights Wilson offers, we learn why the Austens, hardly well-to-do, bought their tea only from one of London's most reputable merchants, that naval officers often brought along their own tea so as to improve conditions aboard ship by indulging in a small comfort of home, and the real reason Mr. Darcy drinks a cup of coffee rather than tea toward the end of "Pride and Prejudice." By the end of the book, you'll be trying to decide which of the intriguing recipes to attempt first, and which Jane Austen novel to read or reread whilst sipping tea (with sugar, but no cream) from a Wedgwood cup.

A disappointment 10 janvier 2005
Par Elizabeth Jane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I would have been willing to pay more for this book, if only it had some color pictures in it, but it had not a single color photo. And pictures would have helped immensely. For instance, when the author mentions the Austens' Wedgwood set, I wish I could see an example of one. Or what did the fireplace and other equipment look like in Chawton cottage where Jane prepared breakfast each morning? The author mentions things like these but we're left wondering what it all looked like. There are small black and white illustrations throughout the book, but they don't complement the text at all; they're just there. In other places, the author seems to mislead the reader when she says Jane shopped at the finest shops in London. (She did sometimes, but as a spinster daughter of a deceased reverend, she rarely had much money to spend for nice clothes.) In another place the author actually mentions the naval vessels many officers sailed on, and seems to imply that sailing back then was a luxurious experience. (Hmm, Patrick O'Brian's portrayal of naval sea voyages, in approximately the same time period, was anything but luxurious... cramped quarters, bad food, and such extreme dangers for the men from disease, war, and the minimal physician skills that were available.)

After I was done reading the book, I reflected that I hadn't learned anything from it that I didn't already know from a good Jane Austen biography I'd read before.

Like many people, I love tea and I love Jane Austen, and so I ordered this book as soon as it came out and was eager to receive it. But as an Austen biography, it's way too scant on details, and as a tea book it screams for better illustrations. Take my advice and pass this one by.

Delightful Tea 6 mars 2005
Par Janet A. Rollins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is entertaining and relaxing as well as educational. We received "Tea" as a gift last Christmas, and I have since recommendeded it to my sister-in-law. My curiosity about such a fascinating character led me to purchase Jane Austen's own book, EMMA. I thought the interesting old and new recipes made "Tea" even more authentic as well, and loved comparing them as I am an ardent baker. A pound cake was really a "pound" cake in Austen's day. If you want to spend quality time enjoying a delightful book, I highly recommend Tea With Jane Austen. It certainly deserves a five star rating.

Sharing a cup of tea with Jane Austen 20 décembre 2004
Par Elizabeth P. Cooper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Nothing seems quite as British as a good cup of tea. This book takes the reader back to the time period when tea was overtaking ale as the morning beverage of choice.

Wilson, a member of JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America)provides great examples of the use of tea and other food in Austen's novels as well as references drawn from Austen's letters. A general discussion of the tea industry provides an interesting historical backdrop. Modern versions of recipes to go with tea from the period are provided. Fun to read with lovely illustrations.
