Ufarlig bog uden de store nyheder. Nogen har fået opgaven med at lave en bog om te og har så fotograferet et tebrev og forstørret det op. Det er vist symptomatisk for bogen.

Very much a coffee-table book (ironically), Tea: Essence of the Leaf is a very short, well-produced book of artsy photographs, recipes and rather mundane text. It provides a brief overview of the history of tea, its production process, various ceremonies and its influence in diverse cultures around the world. For a tea-lover, it is a nice book to have around, but don't expect too much. If you're keen on a headier brew, read Kakuzō Okakura's excellent The Book of Tea instead.

A coffee table book of tea.
(See how there's a discrimination between coffee & tea? just kidding.)

Tea: Essence of the Leaf contains a general information of tea history, different cultures of countries involving tea, some proses, recipes, and photography.




This will be best enjoyed with a cup of tea by your side.

Pure food porn. Lots of photographs, some excerpts from various works of literature that mention coffee, and a smattering of information about coffee in general. The recipes are the most detailed bit of the book, and range from the interesting (Duck Breast with Prunes and Espresso) to the expected (Chocolate-Espresso Torte) to the odd (Toasted Espresso Nuts). One peeve – the word “espresso” is used with religious fervor in places where the word “coffee” would be used normally. So it's “espresso beans”, not “coffee beans”, and so on – it did start to grate a bit.

The other thing to keep in mind is that this is a small format book – 230 mm x 140 mm. So it's not the typical coffee-table offering. You can't leave it lying around, artfully opened to a particular page.

Verdict? Nice, but a little lite. An addition to your coffee porn collection, not a book to pour over again and again.
