AROUND THE WORLD IN A TEACUP
Did you know that tea is the most widely consumed beverage on the
planet after water? Or that all of the world's tea originates from
only three varieties of a single plant? While a cup of tea may be a
simple pleasure for most of us, there are a dizzying number of
tastes from which to choose. And every tea, whether a delicately
sweet green tea from Japan or a bracing, brisk Darjeeling black,
tells a story in the cup about the land that nurtured it and the
tea-making skills that transformed it.
In this authoritative guide, veteran tea professionals Mary Lou and
Robert J. Heiss provide decades of expertise on understanding tea
and its origins, the many ways to buy tea, and how to explore and
enjoy the six classes of tea (green, yellow, white, oolong, black,
and Pu-erh). Additional advice on steeping the perfect cup and
storing tea at home, alongside a gallery of more than thirty-fi ve
individual teas with tasting notes and descriptions make The
Tea Enthusiast's Handbook a singular source of both practical
information and rich detail about this fascinating beverage.
