I learned so much about tea from this book and gained new insights into cultures where tea has a significant role. I had never before been aware of the wide array of teas available to us and of their importance in our social lives. My late parents used to sip hot tea in a glass through a sugar cube held in their mouths, a tradition which I now understand comes from their Russian heritage. I especially liked the section of recipes for tea drinks and for foods to enjoy with them. The several recipes that I tried were delicious and easy to prepare. Marion's dream bars were just heavenly. Only one recipe required an ingredient not found in a regular grocery store - matcha powder. Fortunately, I live in a town with well stocked specialty stores and could readily obtain it The book is a handy reference source, and Dubrin's light writing style and personal observations make it a pleasure to read. I note too that the book itself is stunning, with page after page of beautiful photographs, many in full color. I wouldn't hesitate to display a copy on a table or give one as a gift.
