From the cover: OUR DANCE THROUGH LIFE IS INFUSED WITH TEA, whether lovers tea sipped from a shared mug or a favourite blend drunk to restore flagging spirits.
In Distinguished Leaves: Poems for tea-lovers thirty-seven different loose leaf teas come to life as characters, introducing us to their attributes in their own distinctive poetic form. Three tea people also feature, including International Tea Artisan, Henrietta Lovell, on her mission to de-bag Britain! With illuminating prose prefaces to each section of poems, Distinguished Leaves not only informs but entertains, leaving us refreshed and pondering lifes mysteries.
Effortlessly making posh teas and sophisticated verse accessible, Distinguished Leaves is quintessentially British romantic and quirky. But it also takes us across the world and back in time to the teas and tea masters of the Far East where we discover why Fortune Favours the Tea. Like tea, this book is much more than the sum of its parts.
Buy, brew, read and relax.
