About the Author

Krisi Smith is co-owner of Bluebird Tea Co. (www.bluebirdteaco.com) in Brighton, UK. After years working in the tea industry, Krisi and her partner Mike decided to create their own tea company. As well as its online retail operation, Bluebird Tea Co. has a flagship mixology store and runs courses in tea mixology.


A tea mixologist and owner of Brighton's Bluebird Tea Co., Smith provides the reader with information on all things tea, bolstered with vivid photographs, both current and historical, of everything from tea drinkers to tea pickers across the globe. The volume is organized into four parts, leaving the reader easily immersed in the richly steeped history and traditions of myriad styles of teas. Tea Basics covers such information as the chemistry, varieties, blends, and grades of tea; the harvesting and processing of the tea plants; and tea's influence on the world. Tea Brewing and Drinking explains the numerous tools that can be utilized as well as offering recommendations on buying and storing, as well as tasting and pairing techniques. The Tea Blending section arms the reader with recipes and ideas to become a novice mixologist in brewing such things as matcha and tea lattes. The last section, World of Tea, covers growing areas, with descriptive histories and profiles of each producing country, and is illustrated by colorful maps and sidebars to highlight major countries and unique tea offerings such as Tibet's Po Cha (Yak butter tea). A glossary and index are also included. Recommended for public libraries.-- (02/01/2017)
