You have to love a book with the title of How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea. This children’s book written by Kate Hosford and illustrated by Gail Swiatkowska is all about the Queen’s determination to find the perfect cup of tea.
The book opens with the Queen being frustrated with her current cup of tea and decides that she must embark on a journey to find the perfect cup of tea.
Through her adventures, she discovers that there are different ways to brew and enjoy tea in a multiple ways and that she can even brew the tea herself. She also learns that she is capable of doing tasks on her own and that the best way to enjoy a good cuppa is with friends.
The illustrations in the book are gorgeous and the book is written in a way that captivates readers of all ages. Even at 38, this book had me smiling, giggling, and just enjoying the story in a whole.
I would image this would be a perfect book for any child who either has an interest in tea or having their own tea party. I’m excited to pick up a couple copies for my nieces’ birthday coming up soon.
A wonderful book to be shared at bedtime or even during a tea party. I’m quite excited to see what the rest of the Sisters think of this wonderfully quirky book about a tea adventure that we’ve all been on.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
