An engaging historical survey of tea in literature from ancient China to today. The History of Tea focuses on tea and tea time in books, plays, and poems. Whether used for flirtation or a reason to bring key characters together, this delightful book explores our relationship with tea through fiction. Divided into chapters to include a brief tea history, romantic teas and tea parties (from the infamous Boston Tea Party to the bizarre Madhatter's Tea Party), Claire Hopley takes us on a walk through the long, dark tea time-of literature. The use of recipes based on the scenes in the featured books is bound to appeal to readers.
