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-five 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.

This book was a great education for an industry hands on opinion of the different tea variety characteristics, producing countries and impacts of terroir. To get this type of information you typically need to know someone in the business who is willing to teach you. This book is unique in the fact that you can get reasonably in depth practical information. The other tea books I have found are much more superficial. Focused thoughtful analysis and descriptors is the point. This book helps guide a tea drinker in their quest to grow their knowledge and palate. I learned a lot and refer back to it regularly as a reference. If you are hungry for more practical tea knowledge, this is a great book.

Nice concise guide about various tea types and examples of each. I wish there were more examples of teas that can be found outside the country being discussed but this does give a great overview of each of the tea classes.Full Review

Brilliant introduction to a complicated and multi-dimensional subject. I especially enjoyed the pages dedicated to individual teas and I reference them to make sure i have what i think and i'm brewing it correctly. Suffers from being too narrow in scope (ie. no discussion of Hawaiian tea groves).Full Review
