The Art and Craft of Tea by Joseph Uhl
My rating: 5 of 5 spoons
The author clearly is passionate about tea, and it really shows in this lovely book. Everything you need to know about tea from the history of tea, to selecting, brewing and serving tea is covered here. Beautiful photography fills the pages and draws you into the warmth of tea.
Whether you want to learn about your favorite kind of tea, or you just desire a thorough education on tea, you can find it here. Growing regions, cultivating, processing, the chemistry of tea and more are found in the pages of this jewel.
Do you crave a classic English 'cuppa', a rich cup of Russian tea, a Persian Rose tea, or an Indian spiced tea? All these and more are covered here. There are delightful recipes in the back of the book for such delicacies as Cinnamon Cream Tea, Basil Peach Tea, classic Iced/Sun Tea and more.
Though this could be considered a reference book more than a cookbook, it's really much more. I highly recommend this for tea lovers everywhere.
I received a copy of this book from Hachette Book Group for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
