    Reasonably thorough

    Here's a thorough guide for current and future tea drinkers. Includes some history, and lots of specifics in the author's opinion on how to make perfect tea. I had hoped to find info on Yerba Mate as well - regardless, it is an outstanding exploration of tea and how to enjoy it. Nice book to look at and touch, as well.
