Description
After water, tea is the most frequently consumed beverage in the world, and has played a central role in everything from the ritual pursuit of enlightenment in Japan to political protests in Colonial America. In this elegant catalogue—illustrated with hundreds of color photos and reproductions of art—11 historians explore the impact of tea from its discovery in ancient China to the present-day tea plantations of Assam, while also tracing the multitude of ways tea has figured in the visual and literary arts.

"A seminal work of meticulous scholarship, informed and informative, thoroughly reader friendly, and a delight to simply browse through."—Midwest Book Review

"Editor and guest curator [Beatrice] Hohenegger masterfully combines serious history and museology.... The literature and 250-plus illustrations make this a good addition for libraries and anyone interested in tea culture and history."—Choice
