I recently purchased this book because it was on the sale in the Kindle store. It was informative and interesting but also a quick and light read. Each type of tea was discussed in depth, with easy to follow brewing recommendations and notes on flavor profiles. While it doesn’t cover every tea there is (and really what book could?), all of the important ones are touched upon.
The thing that I loved the most was that it is very factually correct. I’ve picked up many a book on tea only to spend my time giggling over the inaccuracies. I think the paper version would probably make a perfect gift for the budding tea fancier. The recipes at the end sound absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to try them. Aside from not having color pictures, I thought that it would make a really decent intro to tea. I would definitely recommend this book.
