More Than a Tea Book


I attended a very special afternoon tea at Elmwood Inn in Perryville, KY on March 18, 2004, hosted by Bruce Richardson. The tea was a lovely, intimate affair with about 30 guests and featured special guest and speaker Norwood Pratt, one of the world's leading authorities on tea and tea lore and author of the New Tea Lover's Treasury. This book is a history and guide to teas of the world and is one of many books in my personal tea library. But, this one is more than just a book, it is a reminder of a very special and memorable tea experience!

How wonderful to have a signed copy and the memories to go with it!

Lucky you to have an autographed copy! I have this book as well (unsigned, sigh) and find the author quite witty!

Norwood Pratt is very witty indeed. Each time I attend the tea expo I always make a point of saying hi to Norwood. When I first became interested in tea and the business of tea his book was recommended to me. The person recommending it said, "If you only read one tea book, Norwood Pratt's book should be it."

Stopped by after seeing a link on Charli and Me. Isn't Norwood delightful? I had the pleasure of sitting at the table with him when he was a guest lecturer at a programs I was attending almost 10 years ago in the Washington area. I learned so much from him.
