We are thrilled to announce the forthcoming publication of our new tea book: The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook: A Guide to the World’s Best Teas. Our new book is a companion book to our tea ‘bible’ The Story of Tea: A Cultural History and Drinking Guide, and it is also being published by Ten Speed Press, Berkeley, CA.
The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook is small in size but mighty in content. It covers topics that we left untouched in our previous book ( such as steeping, storage and aging tea ) and each compliments the other quite nicely information-wise.
Look for The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook to arrive in bookstores towards the end of March. Many bookstores are stocking fewer titles than they did in the past – if you wish to support your local bookstore, please be sure to let them know that you are interested in purchasing a copy. At a modest price of $16.95, we hope that our book will be on every bookstore’s ‘must have’ list for spring.
We hope that all of our tea customers, fans and readers had a wonderful Christmas filled with delicious new tea and stunning teawares. We have many unique and special teas to introduce in the New Year, and look forward to presenting them to you.
Best wishes for a safe and Happy New Year !
