Interview with Jane Pettigrew, author of World of Tea: Discovering Producing Regions and Their Teas.
As a fan of all things British, I was eager to read Jane Pettigrew’s World of Tea. I discovered her newest book goes way beyond British tea and customs as she explores more than 60 tea-producing countries, even the smallest most obscure regions of the world.
Each tea producing country is covered by explaining their history, terroir, variety of cultivars, manufacturing processes, categories of tea made, local tea culture, and rituals. The book is a coffee table style book featuring detailed maps and the most beautiful, color photography.
I had the opportunity to interview Jane Pettigrew about her book and life’s work dedicated to educating others about tea.
