James Norwood Pratt’s The Ultimate Tea Lover’s Treasury
30th Anniversary Edition of “the book that launched America’s Tea Renaissance,” The Tea Lover’s Treasury published in 1982 by 101 Productions in San Francisco. This was the seminal text which the author revised and transformed into JNP’s NEW Tea Lover’s Treasury in 2000 and which he has now re-written completely for the third time in the light of his deepening understanding and love of tea and tea lore. He reprints the great M.F.K. Fisher’s 1982 introduction and expands his classic account of the history of tea, which he also up-dates with the addition of a participant’s account of America’s Tea Renaissance. Besides tea’s history—“The Romance of Tea”—the book devotes sections to “The Wonders of Tea”—JNP’s authoritative guide to teas of the world-and “The Practice of Tea,” the practical how-to’s. This re-written version of Mr. Pratt’s masterpiece is his last word on tea. No tea book has proved more valuable or more widely translated and enjoyed. All copies are signed by the author.

James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary
The newly completed and now definitive Tea Dictionary includes all principal kinds of tea grown in the world, with a timeline of tea history, maps, and striking photography, principally by Yoon Hee Kim.
With the collaboration of Devan Shah and Ravi Sutodiya, publishers, and Chen Zongmao, China’s foremost tea authority, James Norwood Pratt has demystified trade terminology for tea cultivation, manufacture, tasting, trading, marketing, and classification, with an abundance of botany, business, history, folklore, and “... almost all the gardens and place names we think worth listing.” It is the first work in English to include Chinese characters whenever possible and is intended to be an indispensable tool for tea lovers of every description.
