An updated edition of the "World's Best Tea Book" acclaimed by 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 revised and extended content plus new photographs. 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. Special features that loyal tea drinkers will especially enjoy are: Local tastes and methods of preparing tea (e.g. macha) Tasting notes and infusion accessories Teapot recommendations Caffeine, antioxidant and biochemical properties of 35 teas 15 gourmet recipes using tea A directory of 42 select tea.
