I'm trying to start to drink more tea and this is a great place to start if you want to learn more about tea, the traditions in different places, the different types of tea, and good snacks to serve with it.
Great idea, dismal execution. Apparently, the author has just found out about tea. Then he probably checked a few websites, looked tea up at Wikipedia, and wrote a book. The book is mainly recipes, foods to enjoy with tea. I cannot comment on them as I did not buy this book for recipes, I was looking for new information on tea. While this book does contain a few accurate facts about tea, it also contains egregious errors. One of the biggest being that Puer tea is a type of oolong! This mistake alone is so boneheaded it invalidates the entire book.

I love the Little Black Book series, but this title is more like the little black mark.
This book is filled with misinformation. It categorizes the brewing time for green teas as between 160 and 170 when they're much more varied, as well as labeling Pu-Erh as a specific tea, instead of a category of teas such as green, white, yellow, black, and oolong.

Not encyclopedic, but not expected to be. For anyone who just wants to know the basics (and sometimes the complete basics include things that those with experience might not know), this is and excellent little intro and reference book.
The Sphinx of Driz
I learned about tea growing regions, tea grades, tea preparation and much more.
I would recommend to both new and current tea lovers.
Thank, needed the info. Just gave up coffee.
Fun, Entertaining, book on tea. Would make a wonderful gift. I bought this for my Kindle and I found it to be a page turner.
I really liked this book; I saw it in a tea shop in Brighton, England an I knew I had to have it. It is informative and very cute.
