A Social History of Tea - by Jane Pettigrew & Bruce Richardson
"British writer and tea historian Jane Pettigrew has joined forces with American tea writer Bruce Richardson to chronicle the fascinating story of Tea's influence on British and American culture, commerce and community spanning nearly four centuries. These two leading tea professionals have seen first hand the current tea renaissance sweeping modern culture and have written over two dozen books on the subject."
"In a spell binding way the story skips merrily along while seeming to skip nothing; it moves quickly but never seems to hurry. Any lover of quaint and curious lore will spend happy hours taking instruction from these two authors."
