We are happy to announce the NEW EXPANDED THIRD EDITION of this classic guide to all the major tea-producing countries of the world and the teas they produce - from favorites such as Darjeeling, Assam, Lapsang Souchong and Earl Grey, to the more acquired tastes of Japanese green teas and the exquisitely beautiful rare Chinese white teas. The expanded edition includes several new tea-producing countries, including Korea and Vietnam.

Jane Pettigrew and Bruce Richardson describe how tea is produced, processed, traded, and blended. They give expert guidance on how to precisely brew the different types of tea.

The second half of the book is a comprehensive Tea Directory featuring information on 140 teas. This section is organized alphabetically by country and then subdivided into the region and tea type. Each tea is illustrated by close-up photography of the dry leaf, wet leaf, and infusion, with an accompanying description of characteristics and brewing tips to enjoy the variety at its best. Packed with color photography.

Illustrated with beautiful photography of tea gardens, teawares, and tea scenes, as well as posters, caddy designs, and other tea accouterments, The New Tea Companion is the essential guide to how life-enhancing tea is enjoyed across the world today.

This professional guidebook is endorsed by Twinings London, the UK Tea Academy, Metropolitan Tea Canada, Teavana, and countless tea purveyors across the globe.
