More About the Author

DIANA ROSEN

As a passionate enthusiast of fine specialty tea, I've explored its history, customs, and charms in several books, amplified by two trips to India. Next on the agenda, Japan and China!

In the meantime, I write! Of my 13 books (so far) six involve tea, and other topics include coffee (yes, I'm bi-beverage), ice cream, Social Security, Incense and with the delightful Deborah Felder, 50 Jewish Women Who Changed the World (but enough about me.) I'm a facilitor for freewrite classes, coach and editor for other writers, and contribute prolifically to various web sites on food, beverage, and lifestyle topics.

I play mah jongg at the slightest invitation, and host locals and tourists at the incredible historic landmark, the Los Angeles Central Library, as a docent. Whenever you visit LA, come see us! www.lapl.org

In between time, as a lover of my adopted hometown, Los Angeles, I enjoy all its cultural icons: movies, theatre, museums, Art Deco and Beaux Arts architecture, and an occasional premiere or two.

If you've enjoyed any of my books or want to ask me questions, just write

Format: Paperback
After living in India for 12 years (1971-1983) this delightful book brought back so many wonderful memories that were so strong you could almost taste them. Diana Rosen has done an excellent job of blending the romantic culture with the traditions of making and serving tea that transcends all classes and castes of the India subcontinent. After reading 'Chai' I have order six more copies as gifts for my close friends. Everyone who enjoys a cup of tea, and what it can bring, will love this tasty and instructive book.

Format: Paperback
This is a fine book for any tea lover. My only quibble is with the recipes using a 14 ounce can of unsweetened condensed milk. The only milk that comes in that size is the Eagle Brand type which IS sweetened. I made the recipes with the sweetened milk and they taste fine. I think it is a typo, but I may be wrong.

This is lovely little book. The anecdotes and details about chai and its origins are almost as warming as the tea itself.

If you are a tea drinker and can appreciate the aromatic scent and warming blend of spices in your tea, then this is the book for you. I am a chai tea drinker -- its extremely flavorful, inviting, and soothing. This book indicates the various types and recipes of chai tea, and it tells the story of its origin and the authors experience with the teas. If you are interested in chai teas, then this is the book to have in your collection of recipe books.
