My surprise read of 2007, straight from the early 20th century. A delight, a revelation. A history of tea that turns out to be a precise, lovely and wise book about the ways of the world, from ancestral Japan. If asked today, this is the book I'd choose to have on an island if I could have only one. It is ideal.
