Review
The ultimate guide for tea lovers worldwide... Full-color photographs, maps, and illustrations elevate this title from guidebook to work of art.--Kelli Ann Wilson"Taste for Life Magazine" (12/01/2016)

A tea mixologist and owner of Brighton's Bluebird Tea Co., Smith provides the reader with information on all things tea, bolstered with vivid photographs, both current and historical, of everything from tea drinkers to tea pickers across the globe. The volume is organized into four parts, leaving the reader easily immersed in the richly steeped history and traditions of myriad styles of teas. Tea Basics covers such information as the chemistry, varieties, blends, and grades of tea; the harvesting and processing of the tea plants; and tea's influence on the world. Tea Brewing and Drinking explains the numerous tools that can be utilized as well as offering recommendations on buying and storing, as well as tasting and pairing techniques. The Tea Blending section arms the reader with recipes and ideas to become a novice mixologist in brewing such things as matcha and tea lattes. The last section, World of Tea, covers growing areas, with descriptive histories and profiles of each producing country, and is illustrated by colorful maps and sidebars to highlight major countries and unique tea offerings such as Tibet's Po Cha (Yak butter tea). A glossary and index are also included. Recommended for public libraries.--Becca Smith"Booklist" (02/01/2017)

The pictures are a feast to the eyes and I really think that it's worth having in one's collection.--Ricardo Calcedo"My Japanese Green Tea Blog" (01/25/2017)

This book will delight tea lovers, history buffs, and travelers... Public libraries will find this book a good buy.--Georgia Briscoe"American Reference Books Annual" (03/01/2017)
