From the monasteries of Tibet to the Moroccan souk, discover the rich history and time-honored traditions of tea, one of the world’s most ancient pleasures. Tea and the intricate traditions it inspires are enjoyed across the globe—from Asia to Africa and the Americas. This volume is an in-depth journey through the history of tea, including details on the origins and evolution of tea production and the unique characteristics of each variety, from blue-green oolong to a warming winter blend from St. Petersburg. Stunning photographs reveal the magic of tea-drinking customs, from the charm of an English tearoom, to the elaborate Chinese and formal Japanese tea ceremonies, to the bustle of an Indian market. They also include seventeen tea-inspired recipes, such as a coconut milk chai latte, Earl Grey-flavored lobster pâté, and matcha-infused madeleines. This gift volume, complete with detailed tasting notes and delicately packaged with a ribbon closure, offers a comprehensive introduction to the global history of tea.
Christine Dattner, a tea blender and authority, has opened numerous teahouses. Sophie Boussahba’s photographs have appeared in Elle Décoration and Elle à Table. Together they published The Book of Green Tea (2003).
