A Time for Tea – Travels through China and India in Search of Tea –

Jason Goodwin

“On a personal journey through the serpentine paths of the tea trade – from China to India to London – Jason Goodwin sets off to discover the history of tea from its ancient beginnings in the Far East to its influence today. …

Jason Goodwin splendidly evokes both past and present in this lively and intriguing traveler’s journal, as he traces the development of the tea trade from its origins in Canton factories through the Opium Wars and the settlement of British India, when planters were also empire builders, to the state of the art today. Full of brilliantly observed detail, both historical and personal, this is an informative, funny and highly original debut by a talented new travel writer.”
