What About Tea?

This little 1976 paperback tea book was sitting on a stack of used books in a local antique mall. I snapped it up then looked inside the front cover. It is inscribed as a Christmas gift in 1981 "to Jackie from Virgina." I can't help but wonder who those ladies are/were and when and where they enjoyed tea together, but I am sure they did.
What About Tea? by Donna Forsman covers the history of tea, where tea is grown, the types of tea buying, storing and making tea, recipes with and for tea and a lot more. Actually, I was surprised at how "current" the tea information is in this book.
I have over 200 books in my tea library but had never seen this one. The best part is it was just one dollar!
