Handy little book with passion for tea. Informative about the tea-making process and the distribution of it, as well as tea traditions in different cultures, and with interesting recipes.
Bloody excellent.

Nice, but all too brief--and I wish the authors spent more time on the history and botany of tea rather than a collection of recipes. Still, made me thirsty for some Assam and Nilgiri and sent me on a search of Sikkim.

Review originally posted on: http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

Its not often that I read non-fiction books but I read this one all about tea. It may seem like a slightly strange subject to want to read about, but I love tea and wanted to know more about it. I found it a really interesting, and I finally discovered what the difference between black, green and white tea which I wasn't clear on before. I also found it really easy to read, one of the reasons that I don't read non-fiction books

Recommends it for: tea drinkers
This is a perfect pocket-sized guide to tea.

It gives a basic overview of all the need-to-know stuff as well as including extras like recipes.

It gives a nice amount of information of different types of teas as well as a good explanation on how different types of tea are graded. It discusses popular teas and gives some background on how tea is received in different countries.

It definitely feels like it has been written for an American audience however this doesn't take away from the books usefulne

Recommends it for: everyone
This is really great to have around and very useful for getting into tea, but it's not completely thorough or anything. Still, I really enjoy it and recommend it to everyone.
