THE BOOK OF TEA is in every way a superlative volume! Rarely has a topic as seemingly simple as tea resulted in a more comprehensive and fascinating excursion into the history of the leaf, of the myths and legends surrounding the leaf, the manner in which tea evolved as a drink, as a commodity, as an instigator for battles, and as a means by which gentility is measured.

Authors Alain Stella, Gilles Brochard, Nadine Beautheac, and Catherine Dozel have joined to provide essays on every conceivable aspect of the art of tea drinking and the results are a compendium of the influence of this popular drink in every part of the world where partaken, grown, and appreciated. The writing is skilled, informative, laced with both humor and intrigue, and fills in a lot of spaces in world history that haven't been explained as well in most other history overviews.

Couple these fascinating essays and forays with a wealth of old photographs of tea services from the most basic of cultures to the most elegant of formal tea parties, with drawings and paintings and prints that focus on the growth and art of tea, and then top it off with a series of new photographs by Marc Walter of contemporary settings of tea as still life and as celebratory images of tea plantations to tea in pots and cups, and you get an idea of how extensive this book is. The design of the book (from Flammarion) is stunning. This is a fine art book as well as a most informative resource about one of the staples of our civilization. Highly Recommended!

The Revised and Updated edition is revised in that it has had a chapter removed. Considering that there were only 4 chapters in the original edition, the revision, by removing the chapter on Tea Barons, is considerable. There are no text revisions. The book arrived damaged, but the seller promptly credited my purchase. They were great.

Beautiful book -- amazing photos. Book jacket was a bit more shop worn than I would have liked as it was a gift, but the contents more than made up for it.
