Tea is perhaps the world's most widely loved drink-preferred for its refreshing and energising qualities as well as its medicinal values. Today people the world over reach out to tea in times of pain and pleasure, agony and ecstasy and it cheers all!

This book wonderfully captures the past and present of tea. From the various legends surrounding its origin to the first tea plantations to varieties of tea-all that one would like to know about tea has been captured in a concise, yet fascinating style.

Tea is a legend. It has always been a dear subject for innumerable researchers. The bibliography on tea runs into massive volumes with stories, treatises, studies and collections. It is not a light subject that could be brewed in a few minutes and poured into a tea cup to sip relaxingly, but one that is oceanous with unfathomable depths.

The plant, whose juice warms many a million hearts around the world and runs as the life line for many and has become an indispensable part of our lives. To know all about tea is fascinating.
