Product description

Review

I hope the contents of this exquisite and unusual little book will inspire you to put tea to the fore. --Nigel Havers

'Delightful little volume by a real tea poet, celebrating different teas and 'tea people''. The Bookseller

'Reviving a centuries old tradition of writing poetically about tea, Elizabeth Darcy Jones' delightful and often seductive verse is catching attention across the world.' UK Tea Council

'... she's not just any bard, she's Elizabeth Darcy Jones, Britain's tea poet, and she can talk about tea faster than you can drink it.' Evening Standard

'Did you know Britain has a Tea Poet? She is Elizabeth Darcy Jones and her enchanting verse about tea comes out in a book, Distinguished Leaves, which will be launched at The Savoy this month. The seductive poems uplift and delight - just like good tea - and that charmer Nigel Havers has written the foreword.' The London Magazine

‘Whether you’re a tea connoisseur or drink the same supermarket brand of tea every day then this collection of poetry is for you.’ Lorraine Mariner, Curator and tea-lover, The Poetry Library
‘If, like me, you love both tea and poems that rhyme, this is clearly the perfect book for you.’ Sophie Hannah, best selling writer and poet

'Britain needs a Tea Poet like Cornwall needs its clotted cream and Tregothnan its camellias'. Jonathan Jones, Garden Director, Tregothnan Estate

About the Author

Elizabeth Darcy Jones is one of a handful of tea poets in the world, perpetuating the ancient Chinese and Japanese tradition of writing poetry about the multi-faceted aspects of tea. Elizabeths first volume of poetry, Simply This, now sold out, was described by Tony Parsons as a delightful mixture of prose and poetry... . A former City voice coach for Cazenove & Co (and once described by The Daily Telegraph as its Queen Bee ), Elizabeth was commissioned to write the post-war biography of wartime S.O.E. coding genius, Leo Marks OBE. She regularly performs her tea and other poems in London, and was a featured guest at The Seven Dials Club as part of the London Alternative Fringe Festival in 2010.
