Synopsis

The Story of Food: Tea by Alex Woolf

Did you know that the plain-looking bags you use to brew a steaming mug of tea are steeped in fascinating history? This simple drink has caused wars, been smuggled, been the drink of the elite and even resulted ship races across the globe! This book describes the journey tea has taken, from ancient Chinese rituals to an everyday staple drink. Other topics covered are the health aspects of tea, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world. With bright illustrations and amazing photographs, this is an ideal leisure read, but also perfect for coursework and presentations for key stage 2 readers.

Reviews

It's fascinating to learn where our food comes from, and how it lands up neatly packaged on the supermarket shelf
