Warning!!!..You could become addicted to Tea

As a dedicated coffee drinker and even after being stationed in Japan and liking green tea...what am I to do. The book, the music ,the recipes...the TEA..will it take over my life?!?


I especially like the pairing of international teas with such Lucious things to eat.

Beautiful packaging

I purchased this to give as a gift to someone who is a passionate baker. The book is beautifully done with tea room descriptions and recipes. The CD of classical chamber music is a perfect selection to having a cup and digging into pastry.
