Book Review - The World In Your Teacup, Celebrating Tea Traditions,Near and Far by Lisa Boalt Richardson

This is the first in a series of 2 reviews of tea books by author Lisa Boalt Richardson.
I recently received a copy of The World In Your Teacup, by Lisa Boalt Richardson to review. This is a beautiful hardcover book perfect for the tea lover in your life, or someone new to tea who wants to learn more, or for yourself. The photographs are fantastic. Also included are a number of recipes for the perfect dishes to accompany your tea selection, kind of like pairing wine with food, this book pairs teas with food.

The book is split into 8 chapters, China, England, Kenya, Russia, Iran, France, Morocco and the United States of America and discusses the history of tea in each region. Before the Introduction, there is also a section discussing the various types of teas and how to prepare them.

The photographs show the various dried teas, along with brewed teas, tea pots, servingware and food of each region.

That sounds like an interesting book! It makes me think of a newspaper article I wrote in the late 90s about tea. I went to the factory and everything. Cool!

BTW: You won the giveaway! Congratulations! More info in your email in a minute.

What a wonderful book! The cover is beautiful. There was a tea house here in town but it didn't last. :-( I did not get to go and experience it before they went out of business. (Sadly, I knew it wouldn't last . . .)

BTW, stop by Colloquium and enter to win a copy of "This One is Mine" between now and midnight June 15, 2010!!
