Teatime can be….anytime

Tea with Betty is a tea manual.  It is a substantive guide and a personal exploration into tea in America.  This blog is an outgrowth of the author’s lifelong obsession into finding a great cup of tea. The content will be simple, informative and educational.  We will demonstrate traditional and contemporary ways to create tea time worthy of becoming an exciting, integral part of America’s daily experience.  Our focus will be on building menus with flavor, texture and variety that pair foods with tea and show how tea time naturally fosters an environment conducive to conversation and sharing.

If you are not sure of the difference between an oolong and a Puerh, we will provide practical information on types of teas, brewing methods and the importance of using quality ingredients, starting with the water you use.

See you in February … on our blog….we appreciate your comments.


  1. Looking forward to learning more about tea with you!

  2. Your generosity for sharing your love, knowledge and enthusiasm of tea has vastly changed my view of tea along with my ability to enjoy various times of the day through a simple cup of Tea. For that I thank you.

  3. By reading your book, I now know how to brew the different teas my husband keeps bringing me back from the Far East. I am looking forward to learning more.

    • Hi J., so happy to hear that reading Tea With Betty helped with your tea brewing. Your husband’s tea shopping in China has led to some interesting and wonderful experiences with tea for me too. Thanks for your comment.
