The Book of Tea (Book Of...)The Book of Tea by Alain Stella

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One species, several different varieties, and hundreds of ways of processing the leaves give us world of tea we now have. I never realized that green, black, white, oolong, and puer tea all come from the same plant. The only difference is in the processing. This book is a great introduction to the world of tea–where and how it is grown, how it is processed, and how it has made its way into various cultures. I have been trying different teas from Seven Cups in Tucson. Now thanks to Stella’s book, I have a little better idea what I’m drinking.
