TeaTime Celebrates 100th Issue, Permanently Increases Page Count

TeaTime’s March/April 2021 edition will be its 100th issue. To celebrate, publisher Hoffman Media is permanently increasing the page count of the bi-monthly magazine from 68 pages to 100 (96 pages plus cover).

The magazine’s page count had largely remained unchanged at 68 pages over its first 99 issues, which began in the Fall of 2003, though its November/December 2013 issue did reach 84 pages.

Editor Lorna Reeves said, “The page increase isn’t just to celebrate the fact that it’s our centennial issue, though it certainly is serendipitous. I am delighted that TeaTime will sport 100 pages from now on.”

The upcoming 100th issue of the award-winning magazine features a look back at TeaTime’s founding and its first 99 regular issues. Also, contributing Editor Bruce Richardson of Elmwood Inn Fine Teas writes in his regular “Perfect Cup” column about the changes he has observed in American tea culture over the magazine’s 17 years of publication.

“Today this magazine is a wonderful combination of education and inspiration,” said Hoffman Media’s Chairman of the Board and CEO, Phyllis DePiano, who noted she’s pleased that the readership of TeaTime has remained loyal and engaged over the years, even in the midst of the 2020 pandemic.

In the newly expanded March/April 2021 edition, the magazine’s entertaining section features table settings, kitchen-tested menus and tea pairings for International Women’s Day and Easter tea parties, as well as a springtime-themed one in which all the foods are gluten-free. Two reader-favorite columns have more space devoted to them beginning in the March/April issue. Our Favorites, which highlights a particular variety or blend of tea, is increasing from one page to two, and Treasured Teapot, which explores the history of a particular pattern and offers table-setting inspiration for it, goes from two pages to three.
