The Little Tea Book 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is a rather poorly digitized 1908 book of rags and tags of poetry essays advertisements legends bits of folklore and a large amount of English men of letters adoring it or deploring it. Nothing much to do with Japan bur it does cover tea drinking habits in Japan China Bokhara and a silk road caravan (ick) A fairly interesting idea. Too bad many of the quotes are pre 1860 which era (think E. A. Poe 1840s) which tend to be so floridly verbose. I thought the merchant claiming every possible virtue, and the doctor every possible vice including sterility was the best. I especially enjoyed the doctor telling everyone to give up that nasty unwholesome tea and drink beer and wine instead.
