This simple drink has caused wars, been smuggled, been the drink of the elite and even resulted ship races across the globe! This book describes the journey tea has taken, from ancient Chinese rituals to an everyday staple drink.
Other topics covered are the health aspects of tea, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world.

This book certainly provides lots of really interesting facts about tea: from its early origins in China and Japan to the present day ... All this information is presented in a very readable format ... I have learnt many things about tea. That said, if you'll excuse me, I must just go and make myself a cuppa! * School Librarian *
