China, as the homeland of tea, pioneers the world in planting, making and drinking it. This book introduces various kinds of Chinese tea, the appreciation of tea sets that suit both refined and popular tastes, trade of tea both at home and abroad, Chinese tea ceremonies and the relationship between tea and literati and culture.
