A Global History
Hardcover ISBN: 1861897766
From oolong to sencha to chai, tea is one of the world's most popular beverages. Perhaps that is because it is a uniquely adaptable drink, consumed in many different varieties and ways by cultures across the globe and in many different settings, from the intricate traditions of the Japanese tea ceremony to the elegant tea-rooms of Britain to iced tea drunk on the verandas of the American Deep South. In Tea food historian Helen Saberi explores this rich and fascinating history. Saberi looks at the economic and social uses of tea, such as its use as a currency during the Tang dynasty; its role in American independence at the Boston Tea Party; afternoon tea drunk by the British in India; and the 1913 creation of a tea dance, or The Dansant, that combined tea with tango. Saberi also explores where and how tea is grown around the world and how customs and traditions surrounding the beverage have evolved from its legendary origins to its present-day popularity. Featuring vivid images as well as recipes from around the world, Tea is a refreshing and stimulating treat.
History, Terroirs, Varieties
Paperback ISBN: 0228100275
An updated edition of the "World's Best Tea Book" acclaimed by the 2014 World Tea Awards. This widely praised bestseller has been updated to incorporate the changing tastes of tea drinkers, developments in production, the impact of climate change, and an expanded and more highly developed tea market. This third edition improves Tea with this revised and extended content plus new photographs. TeaTime Magazine called Tea "the reference work we've been waiting for", noting its value to students. Library Journal praised Tea as a "definitive guide to tea (that) will appeal to die-hard tea enthusiasts." Tea House Times found Tea "impressive, well researched, and complete." Tea takes readers on an escorted tour of the world's tea-growing countries -- China, Japan, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam and East Africa -- where they will discover how, like a fine wine, it is "terroir" (soil and climate) that gives a tea its unique characteristics. The authors own the popular Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Montreal which imports teas directly from producers in these countries. Each author focuses on specific tea regions where they travel every year to work with growers and producers, discover new teas and keep abreast of developments that might, for example, remove a tea from the tea house's menu. The book covers black, green, white, yellow, oolong, pu'er, perfumed, aromatic and smoked teas and includes: - An overview of the history of tea - Tea families, varieties, cultivars and grades - How tea is grown, harvested and processed - The tea trade worldwide - Profile interviews with tea industry personalities.

Tea & Etiquette
Taking Tea for Business and Pleasure
2nd Edition Paperback ISBN: 0983610630
Afternoon tea conjures up both feelings of elegance and gentility. It is, after all, synonymous with civility and blessed with the endearing quality of being part of the world's enduring cup of humanity. The customs and courtesies associated with this most civilized ceremony, however, are disquieting to the uninitiated. Fear of committing "tea faux pas" is on the upturn, as tea is now serving not only a social function, but a professional one as well-an alternative to the business lunch or dinner. This has created an unprecedented demand for learning the essentials of tea etiquette as executives meet in hotel lounges to discuss business over a cup of tea. This book includes tea history, tea and health information, steeping guides, as well as elements of both social and business tea etiquette. The authors have given you all the information needed to either serve or be served at a host of tea occasions.
