I wanted to briefly mention that the disappointing quality of this edition highlights Penguin's long recognised problem of spotty quality. The paper here is very cheap, making the book floppy and the cover is made from a cheap glossy stock. Inside, the text looks like it's been printed on as cheaply as possible, is blurry and a faded black. I own a lot of the Penguin Classics and have noticed that the quality isn't the same across, which is disappointing. The quality ranges from perfectly sharp text printed on good quality paper and a nice cover stock, to books that look almost like fakes in comparison. Penguin is a respected publisher and I expected better, especially for the expensive £8.99 cover price of 'The Book of Tea'. Maybe they've become too big, so poor quality slips through, unnoticed.
This book explains when tea became known in China and Japan and then into the western world also.
Then also goes on to explain the Culture of Tea-ism.
I would personally describe the writing style more as poetry. Very Interesting and unexpected.
I don't think everyone will like this book, But even though it wasn't what i had initially wanted, I actually enjoyed reading the history of such a simple thing like Tea.
Tea Is So Simple and enjoyed by many in various forms all over the world.
