The Green Tea User's Manual by Helen Gustafson
The Green Tea User's Manual by Helen Gustafson
This little book on green tea is written by an experienced, well, maybe professional I should have said, tea drinker and pratitioner in the US. You will get lots of information on this little book. It will turn you into a *knowledgeable* tea drinker overnight.
Helen gives a brief survey on the popular and finer green teas as well as on tea preparations and teawares... It would be a great pleasure to read. However, I wish she would make the description more elaborate. For example, if she could give a more detailed description on the Dragon Well, High Mountain (Dong Ding--Cold Summit) OOlong, Bi Luo Chun, ...the finer teas, then a greater pleasure to read.

The Beauty of Chinese Yixing Teapots & the Finer A&hellip by Lim Kean Siew
I agree that this is a very lovely book and it is well written with lots of useful information on the Yixing products.
Just be patient and as I was told a cheaper edition was coming out pretty soon.
If you live in the San Francisco bay area, you could just go to the nearby Chinatown or the bookstores, it costs less than $20 for a brand new one. I live in LA and saw many in the bookstore. For the paperback it is under $20, hardcover same as Amazon's price. If you don't bother to go, try selectbooks dot com. They have it for around $50. Good luck.
The New Tea Book: A Guide to Black, Green, Herbal,&hellip by Sara Perry
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.
