Awe, this was so lovely! It's definitely a surface look at so many aspects of tea and tea culture and tea production and enjoyment, but I really loved how approachable and readable it was. I especially loved the section where it talked about specific regional teas and talked about how they are ma...

In my house you will find a whole stack a various tea books that I’ve acquired over the years. Some of them were given to me and others I picked up along my travels. Most of them have been skimmed, not fully read. There are a few that have been mostly-read. That trend has changed. Upon receiving...

I really enjoyed this book about tea in a coffee table book format, although my coffee table holds far less coffee than tea but that is another discussion. I really enjoyed reading about the history and all of the work that goes into making tea the beverage that we enjoy today. I learned some thi...

A very good starting point for beginners. It touches all important aspects, and it has beautiful pics. It's passionate without being new agey. You'll find here facts, not claims that tea is a cure all nor the mysticism some add to this drink.
It has one very big nit, there are no notes nor biblio...

Part reference book, part recipe book, this book is chock-full of beautiful photographs and more details about tea than I even realized existed. My only complaint is that sometimes the details got a little dry and my inclination was to jump ahead to some other interesting passage. Still a fantast...
