"There’s nothing precious or pedantic about a delightful new book that celebrates Camellia sinensis, better known as the tea plant. Written by tea aficionado Sebastian Beckwith, with San Francisco author Caroline Paul, A Little Tea Book: All the Essentials From Leaf to Cup packs as much as a flavorful cup of dark, floral Himalayan black tea . . . accompanied by cheery illustrations by San Francisco artist Wendy MacNaughton." - San Francisco Chronicle
"Steeped with knowledge, facts, and commentary, Sebastian's book is a wonderful read and resource for anyone who has ever enjoyed a cup of tea. He has been instrumental in guiding us through the vast world of tea over the years and this book truly shows his unrivaled passion." - Daniel Humm, James Beard Award-winning chef/co-owner of Eleven Madison Park

What I do appreciate about this book is that it provides a perfect beginner's guide into the history of tea. That's great! I actually learned something new from that! I was able to get through all of that in about 25 minutes. The watercolor illustrations are cute but not necessarily informative.
What I was a bit upset about was that there was very little information about how to prepare tea, the differences between tea, different types of sweeteners used for tea, etc. There was no information on Pu'Erh teas, Darjeeling teas, etc. That's alright, I get that, since they aren't considered "real" teas (which I learned from reading this book!). It's an informative book, yes, but being such a novice tea preparer,I was looking for something more of a "step-by-step guide into choosing and properly preparing tea."
My search continues and I would rather stay away from the info-flood that is a Google search. Like I stated in the headline, the title is misleading-which is mainly the reason why I bought this book in the first place. If anyone does know of an "Essential Tea Preparing Guide," please let me know!
