I've just started reading two highly interesting (and very readable) books about tea -
The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura, published originally in English in 1906. From the introduction, "The Book of Tea...has served for nearly a century as one of the most perceptive introductions to Asian life and thought in English."
A Brief History of Tea: The Extraordinary Story of the World's Favourite Drink by Roy Moxham. According to the cover, "Roy Moxham begins with his own sojourn in Africa, managing 500 acres of tea and a thousand-strong workforce. His experiences inform the book and lead him to investigate the early history of tea - his research often reflects little credit on the British Empire, while revealing a fascinating world story."
If anyone would like to read these later, just contact me.
