  • Camellia sinensis, commonly known as tea, is grown in tea gardens and estates around the world. A simple beverage, served either hot or iced, tea has fascinated and driven us, calmed and awoken us, for well over two thousand years. Tea: The Drink that Changed the World tells of the rich legends and history surrounding the spread of tea throughout Asia and the West, as well as its rise to the status of necessity in kitchens around the world. From the tea houses of China’s Tang Dynasty (618-907), to fourteenth century tea ceremonies in Korea’s Buddhist temples’ to the tea plantations in Sri Lanka today, this book explores and illuminates tea and its intricate, compelling history.
