It’s the third edition, which has been updated with new material.
I liked the fact that the book is rich in pictures. There’s one in almost each of the 260 pages.
The first part of the book is about tea’s history. It’s a light read, nothing too extensive.
Next there are two parts which make up almost all of the book: Tea production, and Guide to teas from around the world.
The authors did a good job in covering all the basics, such as the tea plant, the types of tea, brewing equipment, etc.
I really enjoyed the last part. It was my favorite.
It’s a directory of tea producing countries, along with pictures and tasting notes of some of the teas.
The main countries are described in greater length, while the minor ones have a small section at the end of the book.
It’s quite a thorough list. I was surprised to find my home country as well: Colombia. It’s the first time that I see it in a tea book.
I’m happy I bought this book. It’s a good addition to my collection.
