This middle section of this book includes dozens of beautiful photographs of various yixing teapots

This middle section of this book includes dozens of beautiful photographs of various yixing teapots. The third section of the book - "the finer art of tea drinking" - was a series of personal vignettes on using different teapots with different types of tea. While they were called "tests" or "experiments," I saw no indication of scientific methods applied. For Westerners trying to piece together the cultural context of tea, I would still recommend a look at this book. Just apply some skepticism and care with your take-away.

This volume contains the history and legends of the most famous teapot in China, the Yixing teapot: discover the properties and secrets of Yixing clay.

Lim Kean Siew is obviously a great lover of these unique teapots and this book does a beautiful job of displaying that love. The photos are perfectly lit, show fine detail and make you really want each teapot!

Lim Kean Siew is obviously a great lover of these unique teapots and this book does a beautiful job of displaying that love. The photos are perfectly lit, show fine detail and make you really want each teapot! But, sorry, all of the teapots pictured are from his private collection. He does a nice job of describing his early tea experiences, his budding appreciation of YiXing teapots and the history of where they originated. I found the duel printing of his words in both english and chinese very welcome and helped to set the 'atmosphere' of this book.

This book was on my son's Christmas list. He is a tea aficionado of ancient teas and proper tea service. Apparently, the clay from Yixing is the most desirable for brewing the types of tea my son collects and ages. I was pleased to find this gently used copy as this book is very pricey, but also very beautiful. Certainly not for everyone, but interesting to know about as the tea culture makes way to the US.

Interesting book but would be a mistake think it's just a collection of Yixing teapots'photos.
Author develops his ideas about an "affinity" between teas and "not glazed" teapots like Yixing's.
Some ideas are good some others arguable but this book worth a reading.

This is a real stunner for anyone who has a penchant for YiXing teapots. When I received this lovely work as a Christmas gift, I was so stunned, I almost cried. Lim Kean Siew is obviously a great lover of these unique teapots and this book does a beautiful job of displaying that love. The photos are perfectly lit, show fine detail and make you really want each teapot! But, sorry, all of the teapots pictured are from his private collection. He does a nice job of describing his early tea experiences, his budding appreciation of YiXing teapots and the history of where they originated. I found the duel printing of his words in both english and chinese very welcome and helped to set the 'atmosphere' of this book. And, since you purchase one of these teapots for both use and artistic beauty, he displays gorgeous teapot images from his private collection with a recommendation of the precise tea best enjoyed in that teapot. While not all that useful (the recommendations), the photos are certainly stunning 'eye candy'. From the very first teapot pictured, I simply wanted to own each and every one. After his gallery of teapots he describes how to enjoy tea properly. He goes into enough detail to satisfy any YiXing teapot enthusist. My only complaints (if you can call them that): the teapots pictured are one of a kind so tea recommendations are not very helpful, the translation from Chinese to English could be a little bit better and I think the editor should have pared some of the rambling (the tests at the end maybe?). But, I assure you, this is a very nice book that would make a great conversation piece.

I have scoured bookstores for a hardcopy, I found this book is really hard to come by. Chinatown? I work in SF, what places are you talkin' about?

Rather than sending people on wild goose chases for low prices that don't exist, better if you just said you liked the book.

I will, the book is a classic with wonderful photographs, warmth and detail. The discussion about the relation between teapot and tea is a subtlety, like many details of Asian style tea brewing, that is virtually unknown to Westerners.

This is a classic book for collectors and connoisseurs.
And if anyone is going to reproduce it, I have not heard of such a plan. What a tweaker.

After exhaustive enquiries by both myself and my family, i have finally got a hold of this book. my brother found it, by chance, in a chinese tea shop in penang. the shop had 2 copies left - 1 that he had autographed. they sold me the other one.

A beautiful book, everything i expected and more. As a lover of chinese teas, I found Mr Lim's thoughts both unique and sensible. Not all chinese tea conossieurs may agree with his views but nonetheless, this is a book written with both passion and authority.

I can't find this book anywhere on the web!!!!!!!! It's such a lovely book, WHY DOESN'T ANY PLACE HAVE IT!!!!!!! Really dont understand how the business world is going...

Beautifully produced volume with quality paper and superb photography of very numerous,well chosen Yixing teapots. The author explores the relationship of teas and how the taste is effected by specific teapots. Quite a revelation. One can return to it over and over. If drinking tea and viewing masterfully produced Yixing teapots are meaningful to you, this volume is a must.
