9781580088046: The Tea Enthusiast's Handbook: A Guide to Enjoying the World's Best Teas


AROUND THE WORLD IN A TEACUP

Did you know that tea is the most widely consumed beverage on the planet after water? Or that all of the world's tea originates from only three varieties of a single plant? While a cup of tea may be a simple pleasure for most of us, there are a dizzying number of tastes from which to choose. And every tea, whether a delicately sweet green tea from Japan or a bracing, brisk Darjeeling black, tells a story in the cup about the land that nurtured it and the tea-making skills that transformed it.
 
In this authoritative guide, veteran tea professionals Mary Lou and Robert J. Heiss provide decades of expertise on understanding tea and its origins, the many ways to buy tea, and how to explore and enjoy the six classes of tea (green, yellow, white, oolong, black, and Pu-erh). Additional advice on steeping the perfect cup and storing tea at home, alongside a gallery of more than thirty-five individual teas with tasting notes and descriptions make The Tea Enthusiast's Handbook a singular source of both practical information and rich detail about this fascinating beverage.

From the Author :

Tea and tea culture is our passion. We believe that learning as much as possible about tea and the process of artisan tea manufacture will heighten your enjoyment of each cup you steep. We hope you take delight in our journey through the vibrant world of tea.

Tea is consumed both as a thinking person's beverage and as an everyman's delight. Tea drinking is a tactile, sensory activity that provides both intellectual stimulation and aesthetic inspiration during times of social gathering or solitary contemplation.

Our search for fine tea draws us back time and again to Asia, for tea that is carefully crafted in small villages by master tea processors who have learned their skills from previous tea masters. In some countries, tea production is still very much hands-on work: a combination of science and cooperation from nature along with the experienced senses of tea workers who can see, feel, and hear the elusive changes occurring in the transformation of the fresh leaf into finished tea. From hand-plucking to hand-sorting, to hand-processing to hand-sorting again, and finally to hand-packing, we are fascinated by tea that is made by human hands that have developed the necessary sense of touch and feel that we call 'knowing.'

When we visit tea-producing countries we become the students to these masters, and are always humbled by their knowledge, their experience and their willingness to educate us so that we may in turn return and educate our customers and readers.

From the Inside Flap :

Crafting fine tea requires a highly developed sense of perception for touch, sight, and sound that no machine can replicate. And every tea - from Taiwan's Ali Shan high mountain gao shan oolong to a brisk and bright Ceylon black tea from Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka - tells a story in the cup about the soil and air that nurtured it and the tea-making skills that transformed and shaped it.
