really liked it

Since I'm supposed to be a tea author, I thought I should read this book to learn more about the origins and culture of tea. It was a great find! Each chapter consists of only 3-4 pages and reads like a novel. I learned about the early origins of tea in China, how the British became dependent on tea, how tea has fostered violence around the world, and other interesting facts. The author has certainly done her research and provides a substantial bibliography.
