Not yet rated | write a review
From the esoteric world of rare, handcrafted teas from Chinese mountainsides to the traditional British cuppa, tea is an essential and much-loved drink all over the world. The variety of teas is amazing and there is a wealth of choice--from delicate, floral Oolongs to smoky, sophisticated Souchongs and sweet muscatel-like Darjeelings. There are blended teas and teas scented with flower petals; and waiting to be discovered are crafted teas that unfurl in the cup to delight the eye as much as the palate. *Award-winning food writer Brian Glover celebrates the story of tea, from its origins in Ancient China to its place in our lives today. *Explores tea''s cultural significance, from the arcane symbolism of the Japanese tea ceremony to the social niceties of the English afternoon tea. *Evocative photography by Diana Miller.
