As tea continues to rise in popularity, this comprehensive guide explores the celebrated beverage through the eyes of a certified tea specialist. From its sometimes murky origins to today’s wide range of tea ceremonies, Lisa Boalt Richardson delves into the world of tea to create a fresh and accessible package for tea rookies and gurus alike. With tips for shopping, storing, steeping, and tasting, plus advice for using tea in pairings, cooking, cocktails, and home health remedies, this fascinating read is everyone’s cup of tea.

The Title pretty much tells the tale. A fresh look at Tea.  The photographs are beautiful and the author is a Certified Tea Specialist and really knows what she is talking about. This is the same author that brought us Tea With A Twist. Even I learned a thing or two. The sipping, the pairing, it is just beautifully written. This is going in the Keep Your Hands Off Shelf!
