This was not an in-depth book, but it did not claim to be. It provides an interesting look at the history of tea, most of which was new information to me, and there are numerous citations for readers who wish to delve deeper into the subject. There is also information about the various types of tea and how to prepare them. I am fortunate enough to live near a good tea shop and already knew much of this, but this is great for readers who are not so lucky. There is also a journal section that I have not yet made use of, but it is a neat idea.
I would definitely recommend this book for tea neophytes, and it makes an attractive and useful gift.
