TABLE OF CONTENTS
The Origins of Tea
Central and South America
“Every book on tea that I have read is limited, with a view of tea that is either strictly European or Asian. But, tea is universal. Tea has found its way into the cups of every culture. Its history is as old as humankind. Jane Pettigrew’s book has the extensive exploration of tea that I’ve been searching for. From Mauritius to Argentina, all tea is included with information on the farms, soil, and of course, the tea itself. For any tea fanatic, this is the best book you can have on the subject.”
