Tales of The Tea Trade (Book Review)

tales of the tea trade

This book was published a few years ago by Michelle and Rob Comins.

They own Comins Tea, a tea house in the UK.

The first chapters introduce the authors, offer a summary of tea history, the main types of tea, etc.

It’s what you’ll find on most books about tea.

Then the book focuses on the international tea industry, tea houses, and some of the tea producing countries.

Finally, there is a chapter dedicated to tea preparation.

The interesting thing for me, is that all throughout the book the authors share their personal story.

For example when they traveled to source tea, their experience at different tea houses, etc.

Their passion for tea is evident, I could relate with the stories.

I learned things about tea in countries that I’m not very familiar like Malawi, Kenya and Nepal.


It is fun to read, even if you already know much about tea.

Here’s the link to the book on Amazon.

    This was definitely one of my favorite recent tea books. I enjoyed the narrative style. The reader still learns about tea, but in a fun and interesting way.
