Tea : History, Terroirs, Varieties

Tea : History, Terroirs, Varieties


 An updated edition of the "World's Best Tea Book" acclaimed by the 2014 World Tea Awards.

This widely praised bestseller has been updated to incorporate the changing tastes of tea drinkers, developments in production, the impact of climate change and an expanded and more highly developed tea market. This third edition improves Tea with this revised and extended content plus new photographs.

TeaTime Magazine called Tea "the reference work we've been waiting for", noting its value to students. Library Journal praised it as a "definitive guide to tea (that) will appeal to die-hard tea enthusiasts." Tea House Times found it "quite impressive, well researched, and complete with numerous photographs illustrating the beauty and wonder of tea and tea processing around the world."

Tea takes readers on an escorted tour of the world's tea-growing countries-China, Japan, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam and East Africa-where they will discover how, like a fine wine, it is "terroir" (soil and climate) that gives a tea its unique characteristics.
