  • From the leaf to the cup, the world's teas explored and enjoyed.

    Every tea has a fascinating story to tell about the place in which it grew – from soil, climate and altitude to the choices its producers made in processing it. The World Atlas of Tea covers tea from the ground up, including why the soil in China makes different tea than the soil in India.

    Tea mixologist Krisi Smith explains what a tea drinker needs to know to appreciate teas of all descriptions. She follows tea from the plantation to harvesting and processing to how to make the perfect cup. The best products and their taste profiles are explained from the world’s key tea-growing regions – from China, Taiwan, Japan, India and Sri Lanka to Nepal, Vietnam and East Africa. Krisi also includes info on everything from blending teas to your own taste and some innovative recipes, to health benefits and the perfect kit to make your brew truly delicious.

    The book is illustrated throughout with beautiful colour photographs taken in the field.
