It is all here in this information-packed short book. In my house Green Tea is king, when serving a guest or relaxing with a cup is steaming tea the choice is Green Tea. But did you know there are many kinds of Green Tea and this book covers 17 of the most popular varieties. This book helped me discover our favorite is Tian Mu Qing Ding Green Tea and is grown high in the mountains of Zhejian province. I also learned this tea should never be over-steeped because of it's leaf shape. Take the bag out of the cup after two to three minutes.
Although most drinking teas have beneficial health factors some are better at special needs. Black Tea as an example is especially good for lowering cholesterol. Black Tea is one of the highest in caffeine. Tea Taster and author Kathleen Rao explores 9 varieties of Black Tea giving the areas grown and the many uses and steeping times. If you want real punch you steep Black Tea for 10 minutes.
Want a low caffeine, your choice will be White Tea which is steeped before drying. Ms. Rao covers 10 varieties of this Diabetes fighter.
That tea you usually get in Chinese restaurants is Oolong, 7 varieties discussed and is good for removing toxins and weight loss.
Not all teas are Chinese, tea is grown in many parts of the globe. Rooibos is listed and is from South Africa.
Ms. Rao also covers 17 types of your grandmothers favorite caffeine free Herbal Teas and their many benefits.
If you love tea you might want to check the correct steeping times covered here, I was surprised to find many teas had a different steeping times.
I enjoyed this very readable book. Recommended!
It is more than enough information to move from basic to expert to understanding of tea. Now with the holidays just around the corner, I know exactly what to get my wife now. I recommend this book for anyone looking to get a better understanding of the many different delicious tastes of tea.
