New Tea Books
Looking for some new tea-related books to add to your shelf? Here are a few suggestions.
How did tea find its way beyond the borders of China, which once had a virtual monopoly on the stuff? All is revealed in Sarah Rose's For All the Tea in China, which rolls out to bookstores in the United States on March 18. Read more about it in this article from the World Tea News.
If a young adult novel about a girl trying to keep her grandmother's old-fashioned teashop from going out of business is what you seek, you'd be advised to take a look at The Teashop Girls, by Laura Schaefer. It's actually been around a few months, but hey, who's counting? More at the web site.
Also new on the kid's book front, it's Cloud Tea Monkeys, by Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham. It's about a young girl whose mother picks tea leaves on a tea plantation. More in this review from the Wall Street Journal.
