Great Teas of China

Great Teas of China - Roy Fong This is an excellent short introduction to Chinese tea. It is not comprehensive, as it does not provide much about the history of tea or the international tea trade for example. I would consider it an appetizer rather than a main course.

Still, I learned a great deal from this little book. It made me want to try some varieties of tea in which I'd not previously had an interest. In that sense, I think it achieved its real purpose.
