Read in November, 2009

As a tea lover and tea blogger (, I was eager to drink up this text. And I enjoyed it well enough. But it's not an easy read. It's an extra marketing arm for a film project of the same title — the book is simply edited transcripts of interviews with tea lovers and producers around the world. As such, it's very skimmable. I'm now eager to watch the film just so I can see how the visual editors distilled the narrative the book editors didn't. The only thing the book adds are several needless, florid introductions to each chapter. The rest is interesting, but reading it feels like work.
