This widely praised bestseller has been updated to incorporate the changing tastes of tea drinkers, developments in production, the impact of climate change, and an expanded and more highly developed tea market. This third edition improves Tea with this revised and extended content, plus new photographs and sections on Mixology and Food pairing.
Tea takes readers on an escorted tour of the world's tea-growing countries -- China, Japan, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam and East Africa -- where they will discover how, like a fine wine, it is "terroir" (soil and climate) that gives a tea its unique characteristics.
The authors own the popular Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Montreal which imports teas directly from producers in these countries. Each author focuses on specific tea regions where they travel every year to work with growers and producers, discover new teas and keep abreast of developments that might, for example, remove a tea from the tea house's menu.
Special features that loyal tea drinkers will especially enjoy are: Local tastes and methods of preparing tea (e.g. matcha), tasting notes and infusion accessories, teapot recommendations, caffeine, antioxidant and biochemical properties of 35 teas, a directory of 42 select teas, and 15 gourmet recipes using tea.
About the Authors: Kevin Gascoyne, François Marchand, Jasmin Desharnais and Hugo Américi are professional tea tasters and the owners of Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Montreal, Quebec.

Praise for the Previous Editions
“Nearly every expert I spoke to raved about this book. From Marchand and the rest of the Camellia Sinensis team, Tea covers the history and culture of tea, regional varieties, cultivation techniques, and much more.”
- The Strategist
“The reference work we've been waiting for has arrived: a comprehensive, but not-too-weighty, one-volume coverage of the world's teas, abundantly and beautifully illustrated with photos of exceptional quality, fascinating graphs, and fairly good maps. The organization of this huge body of factual material will make students most grateful.”
“This book is quite impressive, well researched, and complete with numerous photographs illustrating the beauty and wonder of tea and tea processing around the world. Interesting and enjoyable.”
-The Tea House Times
“This remarkably detailed guide examines the history and culture of tea, regional varieties, cultivation techniques, and myriad flavor profiles. Also included are interviews with experts throughout the tea industry, from Darjeeling heritage gardens to the great cafés. Replete with beautiful photographs, recipes, and charts detailing everything from tea's medicinal benefits to the Gong Fu Cha drinking ceremony, a more thorough guide would be hard to find. Tea-drinkers and die-hard coffee fans alike will appreciate the subtleties and traditions of this dynamic drink.”
“Beautifully illustrated... While there is no shortage of tea-related tomes, this definitive guide will appeal to die-hard tea enthusiasts interested in learning about the modern, global industry as well as the history and enjoyment of this ubiquitous beverage.”
