Review:

"It's this unveiling of both the sordid and sublime elements of tea's evolution that make the book such a fantastically riveting read—one served best with a bottomless cup of your most beloved blend." —Conscious Choice magazine

"Tea: The Drink That Changed the World is an engaging and offbeat exploration of the rise of tea around the world." —Tea: A Magazine

"Martin uses both anecdotes and practical information to tell the story of tea's route through history." —Fresh Cup magazine

"As a tea lover, I really enjoyed this one. Martin starts with the legends about the discovery of tea, then follows it through China (where it was originally a bitter drink prized mostly as a stimulant) to the discovery baking and drying it would make it taste good. What followed was a mix of steady growth, coupled with more than a few dark sides..." —Goodreads

"It provides the history of tea and its introduction to the various parts of the world. The history of tea trade is really quite interesting with wars, drugs and secrets filling the stories. This book does a lovely job of giving the history and sharing the various cultures views and methods of tea." —Crafty Moms Share blog
