A Social History of Tea - Book


A SOCIAL HISTORY OF TEA
by Jane Pettigrew and Bruce Richardson
is the most recent addition to my tea book shelf,
arriving in yesterday's mail. 
I have been anxiously awaiting this book since I
pre-ordered it several weeks ago from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas.
This is an updated version of the original 2001 Jane Pettigrew book.
This new edition includes Bruce Richardson's American perspective
and includes information about "tea and health" in the 21st Century.
I look forward to reading this book
from Benjamin Press.

I'll be looking forward to getting this new edition. I have a copy of Jane's original book. One can never have too many tea books! ;-)

Looks like a good book. Jane Pettigrew's name pops up a lot in all things tea.

I have the original version as well, and I'd love to know if you find the new one different enough that you're glad you ordered it!
