I received this book for Christmas and I believe it’s the best tea book I own at the moment. I love it because it goes into depth about the growing, harvesting, and processing steps instead of skimming over them like most other tea books. This is NOT just another book that talks about different steeping times and temperatures for different teas.
It also has a list and descriptions of the 50 best teas. This section alone takes up half of the book, but it is very informative. Oh, and by the way, the pictures in this book are absolutely stunning! The Tea Drinker’s Handbook is perfect for anyone wanting to learn more than just a brief history and glazed over brewing parameters of tea.
