    Tea history and wonderful recipes

    Come join author Lisa Boalt Richardson, a tea specialist, as she takes readers on a journey where you will first learn about the different types of tea, from White to Puerh. Next, readers will enjoy wandering through the countries of China, England, Kenya, Russia, Iran, France, Morocco, and finally the USA, where each country's tea traditions, cultural tips, and ceremonies from past to present are thoroughly discussed. Included in this impressive book are stunning, mouth-watering food photographs presented by Lauren Rubinstein, and yummy recipes the author has collected over the years from some of her fellow tea loving friends. Here you will learn what foods are indigenous to each country, and what type of tea to accompany the meal, such as the Sohan Asali, a sweet honey and almond treat from Iran, coupled with a black, Ceylon Earl Grey tea.

    Ms. Richardson surely knows her tea, and thanks to her charming book that is packed full of proper tea etiquette and recipes for the best tea party, anyone can be a tea connoisseur, and host wonderfully proper teas from suggestions all over the world. As a person who enjoys a good cup of tea, and is curious about the customs in other countries, I quickly found this book to be an enjoyable read, not to mention the recipes are excellent and easy to follow. I was particularly drawn to the country of France and found myself wanting to try out the spinach and mushroom quiche. Although I did not make my crust from scratch (there's a recipe included in the book for homemade crust too) I was able to create the delicious recipe.

    The World in Your Teacup makes what is usually thought as stuffy and formal tea traditions from around the world seem not only exotic but easily accessible to anyone who has a sense of adventure and is willing to take the time to explore. Finally, this book includes a bibliography for further reading and an extensive Resource Guide filled with websites categorized by country and other various tea related information such as tea ware, and tea tours.

    Quill says: Hold onto your teacups, as you take an extensive fact-filled journey across the world where you'll find interesting tea history and wonderful recipes. This is a must-have book for all tea enthusiasts.

    A Treasure Trove for Tea Drinkers

    As an everyday, but ordinary tea drinker, I found The World in Your Tea Cup a delight to read. The various tea traditions were fascinating. And oh, the recipes! I scribbled ingredients on a notecard and headed to the grocery store. All I can say is, "Delicious and easy!" This book's culinary treasures will warm your heart like a great cup of tea.-Susanne Scheppmann-Proverbs 31 Ministries Author & Speaker.
