About this book
Steeped in romanticism, The China Tea Book focuses on
the land where tea was born-China. A host of facts and
tales associated with this magical infusion that has enjoyed
five thousand years of popularity are narrated in a style
that brims over with culture, charm and good taste.
Passionate yet rigorously researched, refined but eminently
practical, The China Tea Book designed for leisure reading
chronicles the history of tea in China and its transmission
across the globe, the abundance of tea types, miraculous
health benefits of the drink, tea-brewing and tasting etiquette,
and the immensity and sophistication of 'tea culture.' Large
numbers of fine illustrations are a superb foil to the ambience
of China's ancient culture that permeates the narration. And
the layout and binding almost seem to inject the elegant
soul of this volume with a touch of Chinese sagacity.
Whether the reader takes an interest in tea culture or is
a fan of Chinese culture, The China Tea Book is the best
choice for reading, visual appreciation and collection.
This book, full of amazing photos and illustrations, is just wonderful. Divided in two parts, the first one deals in details with the main types of teas (Green, Oolong, Black, Pu-erh teas), and the second one with the culture of tea, its principles, its influence on the ancient society, and its importance in Zen Buddhism.
