The book features four significant tea cultures:
China, where tea is supposed to originate a few thousand years ago,
Eastern Europe where tea arrived overland and, because of that, is called tchai while in Poland it is herbata,
North Africa, where the mint tea ritual is most significant and, of course,
Great Britain, the home of the proper modern tea ceremony, and to whom we all are indebted for shipping tea to our tables.
