Product description

Review

"a map to have in your grasp as you head down the dozens of intricate, interconnected paths that define the landscape of the world's best teas."
--"Fresh Cup" magazine, December 2010
"Excellent, concise advice about tea. "The Tea Enthusiast's Handbook," a charming guide small enough to fit in a large pocket, brims with enthusiasm. ...The information is essential to appreciation; almost every word bears on taste. The Heisses write with impressive accuracy, having researched and lived the subject extensively.... All tea styles...are given equal attention and value, which is rarely the case in tea literature. ...All is laid out with succint clarity and precision."
--Kevin Gascoyne, "The Art of Eating," 7/1/10
"This book is like a mini encyclopedia dedicated to all things Camellia sinensis."
--Imbibe Magazine, March 2010
"The Heisses have written a valuable guide."
--Library Journal, 3/15/10
"All pertinent tea-making questions are answered in knowledgeable, buoyant prose in this handy guide."
--Booklist, 2/15/10
"Rich detail on how to buy, brew, and enjoy the six classes of tea. Questions...are answered with unparalleled passion."
--Tea A Magazine, February 2010
"This delightful, pocket-sized edition offers virtually everything one needs to know about selecting, brewing and enjoying the most consumed (after water) beverage on earth."
--Gourmet Retailer
