Review – Tanya Tate’s Tea and Muffin Party (2012)

Tanya Tate is a Renaissance woman, and she’s good at just about everything… but one thing she’s REALLY good at is being a slightly scheming, slightly naughty, extra sultry grand dame presiding over an afternoon tea party – absolute delite!!

Let’s take a moment to think about Tanya’s newest directorial (and starring) effort for Filly Films - Tanya Tate’s Tea and Muffin Party (2012)!!

Here’s the synopsis…

Ding! Ding! Tea Time!

British beauty Tanya Tate throws a tea party for her sexy girlfriends. Exotic Adrianna Luna has a fling with naughty Samantha Bentley. Elaina Raye brings cookies to the party, but Tanya eats her sweet sugar hole. Devon Lee offers young Presley Hart a sex toy lesson. Fabulous Celeste Star and Jessi Palmer mind their manners and make a hot threesome with Tanya! Come join Tanya’s tea party where girl s are served up a cup of tea and plenty of muffin munching!

…which pretty much says it all… but it also says nothing of subtly – of decedent desserts and floppy hats, of tea sets and sidelong glances. It leaves out the sweet seduction of a nubile young muffin and the teeth-on-edge admonishment of a decently crappy housekeeper/maid/waitress. (that’s all Celeste Star)

As we know, Tanya is having a tea party for her girlfriends – how English!! But Tanya seems unaware that her pal Adrianna is having a little love-’em-and-leave-’em international affair with her niece Samantha. This is probably because “Mrs. Tate” is too busy putting measured, sneakily seductive moves on young Elaina. The third tryst – The Presley and Devon Toy Show – is great, but the real stunner of this film is the final scene. Celeste’s unnecessary yet oh-so-titillating sternness with Jessi, all over the props of frosting and Tanya’s brimming top, is not to be missed. And don’t worry – everyone likes each other just fine in the end.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

Tanya Tate’s Tea and Muffin Party is a lovely title in of itself, but it also plays with some cultural markers in ways that make it really unique. You see, Tanya is a British girl… and she artfully weaves in enough tongue-in-cheek, slow burn Euro subtly such that we uncultured “Americans” think we’re getting a real crumpet (read: treat).

In many instances, playing with cultural markers and stereotypes can be limiting or even problematic. But Tanya Tate’s Tea and Muffin Party is a fun engagement of familiar cultural markers that makes you want to un/cross your legs and fashion your own soiree.

Put simply: another naughty win from a brilliant clever mind – Tanya’s playing with you, and it’s oh so lovely!!
