Read full description of the books:In my house you will find a whole stack a various tea books that I’ve acquired over the years. Some of them were given to me and others I picked up along my travels. Most of them have been skimmed, not fully read. There are a few that have been mostly-read. That trend has changed. Upon receiving a copy of “The Art and Craft of Tea” by Joseph Wesley Uhl, I started skimming it to look at the beautiful photos and see if there might be an interesting chapter or anecdote. The first things that interested me were the two sections at the end of chapter one: Tea’s Chemistry and Change to Chemical Composition. something you don’t typically see in a book about tea. So I started reading and didn’t stop until I got to the end of chapter two!
Then it hit me – I need to read this book! Actually read it. So I went back to the beginning. I certainly wont call myself a tea expert, but definitely a tea enthusiast, so there was a lot of content I already know of have seen before, but there was a lot of new stuff too! I learned a few new things and gained a new or different appreciation for somethings too. I found this book to be both interesting and entertaining. It doesn’t get bogged down with dates and facts, and moved quickly and easily from one subject to the next. I found the last chapter to be particularly fun because it brings tea to current trends, including pairing and recipes.
This book would make a great gift for any tea-lover on your list. The content is worth reading and the book had a good weight and feel to it. Its beautiful whether it is sitting on the shelf or being read from cover to cover.
Read information about the authorFor over twenty-five years Joe has searched to find the world's greatest tea growers and producers. Through this search he connected with luminaries who provided him with a deep knowledge and understandings about tea. In returning to Detroit, Michigan in 2001 he found it difficult to readjust. So, he became an attorney at a large law firm. It was not long, however, that he found himself feeling like another 'grey suit.' He did not relate to the work; its purpose was not his. Noticing the person he became through the eyes of his first daughter he realized a change was needed and resigned from the league of gray suits, packed his bags and returned to Asia. He reached out to his former mentors and began deconstructing the myths the western world carries about tea; about its flatness in culture, the tendency towards garish blends, and about how the discourse of craft and terroir is lost. In so doing, he realized there was an opportunity to tell a different story and to tell that story from the most unlikely places, his hometown Detroit. In moving back to Detroit, he started Joseph Wesley Black Tea and began sharing his love and passion for the world's best tea.
