Light and Easy Read

This book is a lot of fun. It was never meant to be a trusted resource, just a colorful tour through the modern world of tea. It does that job very well. It doesn't mention Puerh tea, and that's a disappointment. But it wasn't meant to be comprehensive, just colorful. Good for when you don't want to go in-depth but celebrate the tea you love so much.

A very good book, with a minor exception

I've been a tea drinker for almnost all of my life. As a child in the early sixties I can recall that there was always tea in the kitchen. And now, at almost 50, tea is my favorite drink. I don't care too much for coffee. A cup of hot tea is what I prefer. I've read a few books on tea over the years, and I've drank many, many different types of tea. These days I know what I like and that's pretty much what is in the cupboard. This book presented a good deal of worthwhile information in it's few pages. The history, geography, and types of tea are spelled out clearly and simply. All in all, it was a good book. But as I said, there is a minor exception. While this is the first time I'd seen this topic in an actually printed book, it is one that gets it's share of abuse on the tea drinkers forum; and that would be the suject of cream, sugar, and or lemon in your tea. In The Little Book of Tea, the author basically declares those who enjoy a little sugar in their tea, or a little lemon, to be acceptable, but looked down the nose at. I've heard it all before. It's amusing nonsense at best. Drink your tea how you enjoy drinking it. That's what it's all about: enjoyment.
