The Essence of Tea

The Essence of Tea – $28.50 – OUT OF STOCK

You’ve never read a book about tea quite like this one.  Partially educational, partially poetic, and wholly inspirational, the text goes beyond the surface to provide a comprehensive picture of tea.  You will learn how to identify, store, brew, serve, and savor quality teas.

Author Shan-Tung Hsu takes care to personify tea varieties, from the tender green to the assertive black, making them easy to differentiate and remember.  Colorful anecdotes drawn from the author’s experience teach us that tea has stories to tell and wisdom to reveal.

Shan-Tung Hsu’s upbringing, steeped heavily in tea culture, combined with his background in Eastern philosophy and energy work to provide a friendly, informed narration that’s both thought-provoking and accessible –like tea itself.

This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys tea and who appreciate the simple, good things in life.
