Cheers to the Fox sisters for their new cookbook, Alice’s Tea Cup, out today!

When I found out that I would be working on the publicity for Alice’s Tea Cup, I was overjoyed. First, because I am a lover of tea and treats. (Who isn’t?) Second, because I’d been to Alice’s and enjoyed a perfect New York afternoon there, with a lovely cup of oolong tea and hands down the best pumpkin scone I have ever had—amazingly moist, with a caramel glaze that is buttery, sweet, and salty all at the same time.

The experience at Alice’s brought me back to my college days as a barista at a specialty café with a vast tea collection. Living in New York, I struggled to find a place to have tea in a laid-back atmosphere. Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Alice’s on the Upper West Side. The delightful sisters and owners, Haley and Lauren Fox, have created a warm, welcoming environment for all ages, with a touch of whimsy. They have an impressive array of teas along with a full menu of savory fare, baked goods, sweet treats, and specialty drinks. Among their most popular menu items are the beloved aforementioned pumpkin scone, the Lapsang Souchong Smoked Chicken Salad, Alice’s BLT, and the Chocolate Chai Cupcakes.

Now you don’t have to be in NYC to enjoy the magic of Alice’s. On sale today is Alice’s Tea Cup: Delectable Recipes for Scones, Cakes, Sandwiches, and More From New York’s Most Whimsical Tea Spot. All the recipes mentioned above plus 75 more are included in this adorable cookbook, which has straightforward instructions and beautiful photographs. Haley and Lauren also demonstrate how to throw a tea party for every occasion and how to hand dye fabrics with tea (a great way to recycle dingy or discolored linens). This lovely and fun cookbook is definitely going to be my go-to gift for the holiday season. Check out this article featuring Alice’s Tea Cup in the New York Daily News, which includes four recipes and photos from the book.
