Review: I'm a big tea drinker. All summer I drink iced tea and fall/ winter I drink warm teas. I drink various flavors of warm tea and love trying new flavors.
In reading this book I learned quite a bit about teas. How teas are made and the different kinds as well as what makes tea green, white or black. I was actually a little sad to learn that some of my favorite warm "teas" are actually not tea at all but tisanes.
I really liked how things were explained and how different teas could help with different ailments. I would highly recommend this book to any tea drinker.
