Today, there is a tea renaissance the world over. Hip and fashionable, and underlined by a move towards a healthier lifestyle, tea has replaced coffee as the drink of choice for young urbanites everywhere. In the United Kingdom, this new wave is championed by the Tea Appreciation Society, which has more than 300,000 followers on Facebook.
I ♥ Tea is the first title wired into this new generation of tea drinkers. Written by Shayne House, the founder of the Tea Appreciation Society, it provides an immensely stylish guide, from the philosophy of tea and the key moments in the history of the noble leaf to throwing the perfect tea party and even cooking with tea. The heart of the book showcases fifty of the world’s greatest teas, from vintage Puerh, which can sell for almost $20,000 a ‘cake’ (the name for compressed tea) to Darjeeling, the champagne of the tea world.
With its cool contemporary photography and beautifully evocative illustrations, this entertaining, informative and uplifting book will be a must-have for tea lovers everywhere.
