Description

The book is a comprehensive guide to the world of tea. An illustrated tour of the world’s tea-growing countries: China, Japan, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam and East Africa. Like a fine wine, it is the “terroir” – a region’s soil and climate – that imparts unique characteristics to a tea. Each region has its own processing methods and signature tea cultivars, worth exploring.

Topics include:
An overview of the history of tea
The art of making, serving and tasting tea, including tea ceremonies
Tea in cooking, with 15 recipes from gourmet chefs
A set of tables and graphs shows the caffeine, antioxidant and other biochemical properties of 35 teas.

For tea aficionados and for the interested reader who enjoy the occasional cup.
