Tea Books Review
My Top Three Recommendations

Reviews written by myself and readers. Which are your favorite tea books?

Recommendation #1:
Book of Tea

Written by Kakuzo Okakura in 1906, this is a tea classic that you will either love or loathe.

It is written by a very good writer, but will only appeal if you are into Oriental history and philosophy.

Unlike many of the tea classics, which are either written by a Westerner for the Western audience, this is an English book written by a native Japanese artist.

No ordinary artist, Kakuzo was one of the principal founders of the first Japanese art academy - Tokyo School of Fine Arts.

Written in 1906, this tea book is perhaps the best loved of English language tea classics. It has been translated to over 30 languages.

It can be purchased from Amazon.com, but can also be downloaded for free.

Recommendation #2:
The Dragon Lady's Secret Manual

The Dragon Lady's Secret Manual is a distillation of the best articles from Amazing-Green-Tea.com.

I wrote this book in 2007. So at that time, the focus is primarily on the health and nutrtion aspects of green tea.

I recommend it because it is highly informative and - it is FREE.

Recommendation #3:
The Story of Tea, A Cultural History and Drinking Guide

The Story of Tea is an in-depth look at the history of tea, the tea industry, and the culture that surrounds our favorite beverage.

It focuses on the characteristics that make the tea grown in one region different from the tea grown in another. It is beautifully illustrated with pictures of tea gardens, traditional tea ware, and of course, tea.

However, for a book with such a broad scope, the amount of detailed information it provides is really quite incredible.
