What could be more steampunk AND summer related than tea? Growing up in the American South, I've drunk more than my fair share of sweet iced tea, which still seems the quintessential drink for hot summer days (especially in New Orleans). I've also developed a taste for hot tea, particularly Earl Grey or a spicy Chai with plenty of cream and sugar. I've got a daughter, too, who is just the right age for tea parties - I think I need to plan a steampunk tea party.

Anything is doable with a nice parasol!

Yeah- I can't believe I found another steampunk loving librarian! What I like to do is keep it steampunk on the top for fashion (colorful chemise and bodice perhaps) and pair with a skirt to keep it cool. Throw on an outrageous victorian hat for shade and you are set!


I find that the perfect solution to those hot, stuffy summer days is a trip in a dirigible or hot air balloon! The aether is much cooler, and provides a lovely view while sipping afternoon tea!

Always lovely to see you and Sir Reginald. Enjoy your summer!
