Never too Many Tea Party Books! #2

Perhaps you are looking for a book that digs deep into all the different types of tea, herbals, where tea comes from and scientific data about teas.........here it is:
This week I am featuring some of my favorite tea books that I carry at my store..... Elizabeth Knight has done extensive research for this book about Celtic Teas....since my birth father had a Welsh name I was very interested.......and you will love all the background she has found about these countries and the traditions of tea.

I had mentioned this book, "Afternoon Tea" a week or so ago - the pictures of each dish are very helpful.....I am glad this is back in print again!



Nan Taylor, a tea speaker and expert from California has this book full of information and suggestions for various types of tea groups, plus recipes, plus, plus, plus!

I do love my tea books -- I don't have the Harney one (although I do have a the one about the French tea (whose name I can't remember how to spell!) nor the Celtic one.

Such lovely little tea books. I must confess I am a coffee drinker... but I do love ice tea in the summer.
Blessings!

I also recommend the Harney & Sons Guide to Tea. It's the first time I heard about Puerh. I remember being a little tired of learning all about tea when I was reading it but forcing myself to open up about the Puerh. I thought that was a little obscure and that I'd never go very far with it. Now Puerh is my favorite tea! Sometimes these books can really change things for a person. --Spirituality of Tea

My sister would probably enjoy the celtic tea book for she likes to decorate celtic and listen to celtic music. I have lately heard of a new line of teas. The maker of tazo and stash here in the NW, has started a new line of tea, a very specialized line, called Smith Tea Maker brand. I am going to try some of it. Have a great day!
