Tea with Jane Austen, by Kim WilsonWhat’s the difference between Afternoon Tea and High Tea? Please join the Nova Scotia Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) on Sunday afternoon for a talk by our wonderful Regional Coordinator, Anne Thompson, on the history of Afternoon Tea.

We’re meeting at 2pm in Dartmouth this Sunday, May 26th. If you’re interested in attending, please let me know and I can give you more information and directions. Nova Scotia fans of Jane Austen, I hope you’ll join us for tea and conversation!

If you’re not in Nova Scotia, may I recommend reading Kim Wilson’s book Tea with Jane Austen, while drinking tea from Bingley’s Teas? Perhaps the blend named “Marianne’s Wild Abandon,” or “Compassion for Mrs. Bennet’s Nerves,” depending on your mood.

Squares made by Anne

Anne makes the best squares (especially those ones with tiny flakes of gold, and chocolate drizzled on top…). One more great reason – as if you needed one! – to be a member of JASNA.
