Product description

Review

"The book's preface outlines her life: She journeys the world almost ceaselessly, visiting small farms in China, Taiwan, India and Africa that make extraordinary teas, and then working with top-flight restaurants in many countries to introduce those teas to discerning diners using exacting brewing methods...But just as Lovell often shares evocative stories to help her clients connect with the teas she sells, she understands a book on the topic needs to go further than instructions and exploits. She plumbs deeper meanings, from her own life and beyond. This is a chronicle of someone who chose to give herself over to the pursuit of a Big Life, with the triumphs and sacrifices that choice brings." -- Los Angeles Times "I found myself quite caught up in her infectious enthusiasm as she ventured -- twice defeating her own cancer, which tried in vain to slow her down -- out into the world in search of the green tea hills in China, Japan and India, of course, but also in Malawi, Nepal and South Africa.... This is a love letter. I read the book in one contented go on a flight from Sydney to Hong Kong, where I had a few hours' wait before moving on to New York." -- The New York Times "This is a chronicle of someone who chose to give herself over to the pursuit of a Big Life, with the triumphs and sacrifices that choice brings." -- Los Angeles Times "Poignant, impressionistic, occasionally laugh-out-loud" -- Wall Street Journal Magazine "Lovell has single-handedly raised the bar for teas, turning tea into something to be both critically tasted and meticulously paired with foods just as wine is treated." -- Booklist STARRED review

From the Back Cover

Over the years I've fallen in love so many times, with so many teas. When I'm not visiting farmers and gardens, my travels take me to my customers, including some of the world's best restaurants ... My life has become consumed by the finding and blending and sharing of the most delicious things I can find to infuse. Rather aptly, it's got me into a fair amount of hot water along the way.

A mature summer tea leaf is hard and shiny like an enamel lidded pill box or a glossy beetle's back, but the spring tea leaves are pea green and tender, some edged with pink and red. Breaking and chewing the soft stems is like plucking fresh grass stems in an English field, with an intensity of flavor a thousand-fold.--Henrietta Lovell, The Rare Tea Lady
