New Book on Chinese Tea Culture & Benefits
The Fine Art of Preparing and Drinking Tea
(from a press release)
As China makes its presence felt on the world stage, Western and Eastern culture are mingling in new and exciting ways. Chinese epicures are learning to appreciate fine wines and Westerners are learning that there is a great deal more to tea than we have experienced up until now.
Daniel Reid, best-selling author and a leading expert on Chinese philosophy and medicine, passes on the joys and health benefits of Chinese tea in his new book, The Art and Alchemy of Chinese Tea.
Reid helps the reader navigate through the kaleidoscopic variety in Chinese tea, with its broad range of flavor, fragrance, and other distinctive traits, while also detailing how and why these teas can protect health, prolong life, and enhance mental performance.
The Art and Alchemy of Chinese Tea is for tea lovers, for everyone interested in the value of drinking tea to our health and wellbeing, and for those fascinated by Chinese culture and history.
