I have this and the one for wine lovers. They are both sweet little books to have on display.This one has the brief history of tea, which actually is highly interesting. I think the reason is that it's not too much. I don't get overwhelmed by it.It also contains quotes and superstitions anout tea, like "Two tea-spoons, accidentally placed together on a saucer, points to a wedding or a pregnancy."What I liked the most about this little book however, is the little recipes it comes with, for cakes and crumpets and a picnic tea party.I will most certainly buy more of these next time I go to London.
