Synopsis

For thousands of years tea has been the world's most popular beverage. Starting with its origins in ancient China, this well-informed and witty account written by the lecturer, broadcaster and world-renown tea expert, Sam Twining, describes how tea was discovered by traders and brought to Europe. My Cup of Tea uncovers tea's adsorbing social journey, from a fashionable ritual to an indispensable routine for the many. It looks at the vast and varied array of teapots and services that tea has inspired. It explains the subtleties of tea varieties and the process by which they are grown, harvested, blended and packaged for our enjoyment. This superbly illustrated book is, like its subject, to be savoured and enjoyed. Written by Sam Twining
