Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's this unveiling of both the sordid and sublime elements of tea's evolution that make the book such a fantastically riveting read—one served best with a bottomless cup of your most beloved blend." —Conscious Choice

"Tea: The Drink That Changed the World is an engaging and offbeat exploration of the rise of tea around the world." —Tea: A Magazine

"Martin uses both anecdotes and practical information to tell the story of tea's route through history."—Fresh Cup magazine

"As a tea lover, I really enjoyed this one. Martin starts with the legends about the discovery of tea, then follows it through China (where it was originally a bitter drink prized mostly as a stimulant) to the discovery baking and drying it would make it taste good. What followed was a mix of steady growth, coupled with more than a few dark sides..." —Goodreads
