I’ve been under much stress this week.
There are various reasons: problems with the economy that affect me directly, I’m moving to a new office, and a project’s progress is painfully slow.
But at least this book gave me short times of relaxation.
I briefly met this book’s author, Alexander Ahearn, many years ago at a World Tea Expo.
This book is from 2019, but to be honest I had forgotten to review it.
What kind of tea book is this?
Instead of being mostly text, this book has a lot of images.
Each tea has a large picture that includes a flower, and after that there are tasting notes and a poem.
The pictures are unique and beautiful.
I’m an ignorant about flowers, so I learned about different ones by searching online after watching them in this book for the first time.
There were also some teas that caught my interest. For example a green tea from Bhutan and a Taiwanese oolong called wood dragon.
What I did was to watch a few pages each morning.
It definitely helped me to start the day in a calm manner.
Another benefit of this book is that it is inexpensive.
