ABOUT THE BOOK THE ALCHEMY OF TEA
This is a unique work in the world, the first one completely dedicated to Tea Blending, which covers both theoretical and technical aspects of a “hidden and fascinating” profession, as the author calls it. No doubt this is a tool to discover aromas, textures, flavours, and test our creativity.
The book is aimed at lovers of tea, infusions, and gastronomy in general, those who wish to learn how to design and produce their own blends.
What are tea blends?
Tea blends are mixes of different types of tea or mixes of tea and fruits, spices, and flowers, which are carefully selected and combined to obtain a beverage with a special aroma, flavour, and body. A Tea Blender is the person who performs this activity in a dedicated manner and is in charge of selecting the correct ingredients and combining them properly to create teas and infusions.
Today the book is available in Spanish, English and Korean.
