"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

With this beautiful volume, you will be able to enhance and thoroughly immerse yourself in the tea experience.
