If you browse through all the food + drink collections at your local Barnes & Noble, you'd find yourself a healthy catalog of the finest teas in the world and their glorious history. Or you may Google-search the thousands of tea blogs out there, and you'd discover the ultimate secret of which tea pot brews which type of tea the best. But these were obviously not Tea Master Jason Chen's goal when composing this one-of-a-kind tea book here on two of the most special species of Oolong Tea --- Single-bush Phoenix and Tie Guan Yin. In short, this book is a real delight to Chinese tea drinkers of all ages and different backgrounds. Even some tea connoisseurs may not know all the stories behind their favorite Oolong before it gets to their cup. Through the most picturesque mountain regions of the Fujian province, Jason takes you up close and personal on his pursuit for the most exquisite tea leaves. He takes you on the back roads to experience the whole harvesting + roasting process unique to this ancient tea culture. He even introduces you to the offsprings of some of the most renowned tea makers and tea 'explorers' in Chinese history who are proudly keeping the traditions alive. But the best of it all is Jason's very own camera lens that captures and shares with the readers the most intimate moments + techniques of tea making. Not only a personal travel diary as it is titled, but also a unique documentary of Jason's passion for Chinese tea for over 20 years. A friend in life and a mentor in tea, it is my real privilege to have met Jason the Tea Master only a year ago. I am inspired by every conversation with him, and I am humbled by the time he takes to appreciate each and every single cup of tea. Special is only an understatement. This book is truly a treasure in my library to be cherished forever!

This book is not just beautifully photographed.........the information and details are exactly to the point. I wasn't sure what to expect but am thoroughly pleased. I have learned a lot about tea production, which fully enhances my love of tea itself. I love the story of the two varieties covered and look forward to learning more about other styles and varieties from Mr. Chen in the future. I felt like I was there w/ him - and can only hope that someday I too will witness this beautiful process first hand.

I have just started it but find it extremely good. Fantastic pictures, excellent text, written in English and Chinese give me opportunity to study Chinese with an influence on tea. Amazing the depth of knowledge Mr. Chen has of tea. I also enjoyed the intros by Mr. Cohen and Mr. Pratt.

From the moment you open this book your senses are overwhelmed with images that come alive. The entire 230 page book flows through the world of Chinese tea. From Jason's perspective, each page tells of his masterful knowledge, his decades of experience and he deftly shares it all with unimaginable grace and elegance. One could say I'm biased, I've been purchasing teas from this amazing man for about ten years or more. But I don't think I am. If this book had come from someone else, someone I don't know, I'd still be out of my head with pleasure. If you aren't in dire need of a pot of tea when you first glimpse this book, then you're not a tea lover. "A Tea Lover's Travel Diary" is an absolute MUST for anyone who likes tea, wants to know more about tea, likes China, likes beautiful photography or for anyone who needs a reference book on how those gorgeous oolongs actually come to market. Get this book and spend hours pouring through it and pouring yourself cup after cup of tea. Bravo Jason, this book is a jewel in your enormous tea crown. As is your TeaMaster brewer, mine's infusing away as I type! :)
