How to Make Tea: The Science Behind the Leaf

Author(s): Brian R. Keating


How do you like your tea? An ethereal infusion, the ghost of a scent wafting across your taste buds? Or a mug of traditional brew, so strong that a spoon can stand up in it? We've been drinking tea for thousands of years, yet few of us realize that all tea from elegant lapsang to pungent pu-erhcome from the same source. The taste is down to science: geography, chemistry, and physics, the application of heat and pressure, and the magic of time and enzymes. How to Make Tea lays out the principles for the tea-loving nonscientist; extract the best from every cup.
