First off, an all-around thank you. Jo at the Meaning of Tea generously sent this book my way for free, and while the folks there clearly deserve my gratitude, so does every company that sends stuff out to us Teaviewers. It'd quickly get redundant if I worked my thanks into every review, so here's a general one for now: Thanks, all you tea companies!

From the start, I knew this was a book unlike most others. To begin, you are quickly encouraged to ignore the traditional linear nature of books and read this in whatever order you feel motivated to, a great piece of advice to make this book flow with your current tea mood. And this is certainly a book for tea moods. I felt naked whenever I tried to pick up this paperback without a cuppa in my hand.

I don't want to go too in-depth on the structure of the book because you can learn all about that from a number of other places, including the Amazon.com product description, which is rather thorough. This book is full of wisdom, stories, and knowledge about nearly every aspect of tea. I really appreciate that this spans seven different areas of the world and a broad variety of tea professionals - growers, experts, sellers, tasters, and more. Even if one chapter bores you, you're sure to find something fascinating later on, as long as you find any aspect of tea writing interesting. Ultimately, I feel this book is all about personal experiences, whether it is those of the people interviewed and those you have while reading each page.

I feel as though I learned something with every chapter, and reading this helped me grow both as a tea lover and as a person. This is the sort of book I will read segments of for years to come whenever the mood strikes me. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn, be entertained, or take a break from life's hassles to relax for a bit, and it has certainly motivated me to seek out The Meaning of Tea movie.
