Product description


"This book, The Ancient Art of Tea by Warren Peltier, deserves to be a key reference book in anybody's library collection." -Teas.com.au "This is not a practical book about how to prepare tea in modern times, but a book about the development of tea culture. The book is aimed at people who love tea. Not only drinking tea but the artful process of making it." -Chinese Hacks blog "It is my hope that this book will encourage others in the West to pick up where the ancients and the author left off and go out and search for sources of sweet water here in North America. ... It is time for us to pick up the mantle and spread the word, Tea." -Dr. Eric Messersmith, Institute for Asian Studies, Florida International University "This is a beautifully designed, affordable gift item for people with a love of history, ritual, and tea. [...] It's a perfect anecdote for an over-digitalized, multi-tasking world." -New Age Retailer
