TEA A Magazine
[This book] is a must-have guide for anyone seeking to appreciate the versatility and elegant flavorings of one of the world's healthiest beverages.
Library Journal
Tea drinking is becoming evermore popular in the United States, with exotic varieties turning up even in the supermarket. Green tea as a flavoring ingredient is no longer relegated to the ice cream that is a clich on Japanese American menus. Tokunaga, vice president of the World Green Tea Association, begins with "A Tea Drinker's Guide," describing the various green teas and blends, as well as the etiquette of tea drinking, then moves on to the history and production of tea. She follows with recipes for all courses of a meal, from Green Tea Gnocchi to Matcha Tiramisu (!). There are color photographs throughout, and a final section covers, among other topics, the health benefits of green tea and handy household tips. For comprehensive beverage collections and other larger libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
