With the stylish backdrop of porcelain cups and saucers, unique teapots and silverware, decadent delicacies and teas from around the world, Ms. Hutchison will transport viewers to Manhattan’s most glamorous tearooms. Along with celebrity guests, Fiona will discuss topics including romance, relationships and motherhood — and of course, the history and benefits of the world’s finest teas.

The TEA WITH FI programming block will premiere a popular classic British miniseries, every Monday through Friday. Films include Catherine Cookson’s “The Fifteen Streets,” starring Owen Teale and Clare Holman;
