Tea Book Nominated For Award
A news flash from Mary Lou Heiss, co-author of The Story of Tea: A Cultural History and Drinking Guide. Read my review of it at Epicurean.com:
We just received news that our book, The Story of Tea: A Cultural History and Drinking Guide ( Ten Speed Press, 2007 ) has been nominated for the second tier judging in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2008. We were notified that we were named the Best Tea Book in the USA 2008. This means that our book will go on to compete for the title of Best Tea Book in the World 2008.
The organization behind this prestigous competition is headquartered in Madrid, Spain and the competition is the largest cookbook awards in the world. It is international in scope, which means that our book will now be competiting against other tea books ( in all languages ) from Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian and European authors.
