Book Description

July 15 2001
Completely revised with all new colour photographs and updated recipes, The New Tea Book is destined to follow in the successful steps of its predecessor, The Tea Book (over 37,000 copies sold). From the history of tea, to how to buy, how to prepare and how to use tea in cooking, this guide leaves nothing relevant to tea out. Newly added chapters also look at the medicinal use of teas in spas and provide resources for tracking down unusual ingredients.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice coffee (tea?) table book. Dec 12 2003
Format:Paperback
The New Tea Book is a nice, light read for those who want to learn a little more about tea. It's not the definitive treatise on the subject, but it's great to just pick up and flip through.
There are a number of subjects covered, mainly breaking down into information about the history and production of tea; varieties and types of tea; preparation and serving information; and a few recipes.
It's not the densest book around. If you're knowledgeable about the subject, you know everything that's contained in here already. True tea snobs will find a thing or two to turn their nose up at.
The recipes are interesting, and while I haven't had a chance to try any yet, they may be one of the best reasons to buy the book (snob or no). There are recipes for desserts, beverages, and a few sandwiches. Some of this stuff looks real good and pretty easy to pull off.
The photography is top-notch, and in some cases almost justifies the purchase of the price. But just be ready for light reading that you can flip through as opposed to deep, informative writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very beautiful concise introduction! May 20 2004
Format:Paperback
This would be a perfect gift for most of those who love art and life style...It's such a beautifully written and illustrated book that you would like to keep for a very long time. It provided concise yet somewhat comprehensive survey of modern noted teas and the related. The best thing I like about it is that it provides detailed web sources as to where to buy teaware and teas and what are the existing noted teahouses in America. It's up to date survey. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Photos April 7 2005
By Apple Grey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This books has many beautiful photos in it, but was rather sparse content wise. I was at first thrilled as I thumbed through the pages, but when I sat down to read it properly I was somewhat disappointed. What I thought was a section on cooking with tea was actually a recipe section for items that go well with tea. There were perhaps 2 or 3 recipes that actually contained tea as an ingredient.

This is an attractive coffee table book that is an interesting light reading book on the subject of tea. The pictures are great but the book could be greatly improved if was more detailed in terms of its content.
