A coffee table book of tea.
(See how there's a discrimination between coffee & tea? just kidding.)

Tea: Essence of the Leaf contains a general information of tea history, different cultures of countries involving tea, some proses, recipes, and photography.




This will be best enjoyed with a cup of tea by your side.

If you're at all "in" to tea then you probably already know most of the information contained in this book. This is a basic primer on tea: how it's grown, processed, prepared, and enjoyed. Scattered throughout this information literary passages relating to tea, recipies that incorporate tea, and absolutely beautiful photographs. Indeed, the photographs are essential to enjoyment of the book. I would recommend this book to someone who's just gaining an interest in tea and wants a one-stop source for basic information. Tea afficionadoes will likely find little they don't already know, though the recipies do sound good, and I'm planning to try some of them. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 081181632X, Paperback)

Since Bodhidharma's legendary discovery of Camellia sinensis, tea has traveled around the globe, sparked rebellions, and spawned fortunes. This eponymous volume unveils the delights and mysteries to be found in the uncomplicated infusion of leaf in water, serving up a sophisticated brew of enticing photographs, evocative poetry and prose, history, myth, and tempting recipes. It explores tea's ability to awaken the body, refresh the senses, and soothe the spirit, whether the brew be black, green, or oolong; sipped hot or iced; steeped in samovar or teapot; served in heirloom porcelain or a simple clay bowl. Delving into the life and lore of tea, we visit Bombay, Beijing, London, Tokyo, and Paris, and hear from the likes of Marcel Proust, Paul Theroux, Amy Tan, and others. From tea house reveries to recipes for Orange Pekoe Compote and Tea Smoked Duck, Tea invites us to revel in the subtle bliss of the world's most popular beverage.
