I was amazed at the amount of detail which was presented in this book. I was treated to a realist view of how the tea plant came to be so widely appreciated by the western world. Its instrumental pieces, discoveries and inventions necessary even for simply transport are astounding!
Lemon is one of the more appreciated flavors in the beverage industry. More than just a base, it's something many people look for in a drink. That tartness can sometimes get in the way of the appreciation of the subtleties belying the rest of the drink's personality though. But, will this Lemongreen green tea from Tavalon fall to this foible?
Last week I was contacted by Deb over at Travel and Tea and was asked to do an interview. I've conducted these in the past, but I've not actually been the subject of one before, so I was pretty excited. You can find the interview on the Travel and Tea website.
Here is another tea I acquired while at the World Tea Expo this year. This one is a tea grown right here in the USA! This Kaiwiki Oolong from Moonrise Tea in Hawaii is smooth and easy to drink.
