In this book, I propose a world tour of tea producing countries, from the most famous like China, India, Sri Lanka, to the most unexpected like Peru, Malaysia or Hawaii... This book is a journey behind the scenes of tea culture: a story of men and women, of terroirs and rituals as rich as they are unique. For each tea, I give you advice on preparation and sommellerie, a gastronomic approach to tea that can be served at the table in the same way as wine. This personal selection of 119 teas was found during my travels. This book was also the inspiration for my online store, especially for the photos of Rebecca.
