The myriad uses and benefits of green tea have been recognized for centuries by Eastern cultures and are finally gaining notice in the Western mainstream. Author Diana Rosen, in THE BOOK OF GREEN TEA, explores traditional and modern uses for various green teas and reveals the greater historical importance of green tea, spinning true tales ripe with royalty, treachery, folklore, religion, and espionage. Gently duo-toned photographs compliment the text beautifully. Rosen details the differences in varieties as based on cultural and geographical growing and production techniques, explaining how processing methods produce dramatically different tea. She also suggests optimal methods for storing, brewing, and presenting the tea. THE BOOK OF GREEN TEA includes many beauty applications, cooking recipes, craft suggestions, and ideas for the home. A complete resource guide is also included.
