It's unfortunate I don't get the time to read as much as I would like to, but it hasn't stopped me from collecting tea books to add to my growing tea library. Check out the recent additions to my collection:
Tiny Book of Tea & Treats by Phyllis Hoffman Depiano
This adorable book is filled with beautiful photos and several scrumptious recipes which I look forward to making - Creole Shrimp Bruschetta, Chocolate - Strawberry Brownies and much more...........
Afternoon Tea by Tea Time Magazine
The cover of this book had me at hello..........As you can see, I haven't even taken the book out of the wrapper yet, but I know when I do, I will be swept away into an exquisite teatime experience. Books written by Tea Time Magazine never disappoint.
Green Tea by Hugo Americi, Jasmin Desharnais, Francois Marchand & Kevin Gascoyne
This looks like a great book to cuddle up with in a comfortable chair with a cup of Dragonwell green tea. I just recently had the pleasure of assisting Kevin Gascoyne in a class he taught at WTE. If this book is anything like Kevin's style of teaching, I'm definitely in for a treat.
Steeped by Annelies Zijderveld
The photos in this book are amazing! Love the vibrant metallic cover. I'm looking forward to making the Earl Grey Yogurt Parfaits and Masala Chai Applesauce.
Drink the Tea by Vivian Caethe
This is a fabulous educational journal with beautiful tea photos. This would be a great tool to take on a tea journey.
Time for Tea by Michele Rivers
I'm so looking forward to reading this book about 13 English women who share their thoughts about tea. Single, married, divorce, student, etc........women from all walks of life.
The Time of Tea by Dominique T. Pasqualini
This two volume set comes with an educational volume and photo volume. The educational volume provides you with a very intense history of tea. Every aspect of tea is cover in great depth. When you look through the photo packed volume, you get a strong sense of the author's deep passion for the tea experience.
Put The Kettle On The Irish Love Affair With Tea by Juanita Browne
I can't wait to sit down and read this book. The author Juanita investigates tea habits of tea addicts, teabag haters, tea connoisseurs, teapot collector and much more.....
A Social History of Tea by Jane Pettigrew & Bruce Richardson
I have the original version of this book written by Jane Pettigrew, but this new edition has been updated with recent tea history.
Darjeeling by Jeff Koehler
This book contains a deep history of the champagne of tea "Darjeeling". I think it would only be appropriate to read this book with a cup of deep amber nectar. Yes, it's time to pull out Mariage Feres "Princeton" for this reading occasion.
Modern Tea by Lisa Boalt Richardson
I have all of Lisa's books in my tea library, so I was very excited to purchase her latest at a MATBA event, where she had a special book signing. Modern Tea is packed with information about every aspect of tea. A must have for every tea lover!
The Darjeeling Distinction by Sarah Besky
This is a serious book about labor and justice on fair-trade tea plantations in India. This would be an excellent book to use in a class study.
Book of Tea by Annie Perrier- Robert
The minute you open this book you're drawn in by the beautiful photos and the whimsical way the book is laid out. Books like this have a way of reminding me just how much I love the art of tea.
I look forward to getting some serious reading done this summer. I would love to hear what tea books you're reading or have purchased recently.
