James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary
James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary 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. As Bruce Richardson notes, “when it comes to describing your tea, would you rather sip a brassy tea or a tea that’s long in the mouth? Are you aware that high-grown Nilgiri teas are forgiving while Darjeeling teas are not? Did you know that the world’s largest collection of porcelain Veilleuse-Théières is located in Trenton, Tennessee? . . . These are just a few of the hundreds of tea definitions and facts found in James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary.”

James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary was named the Best New Publication of 2010 at the World Tea Expo. The 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.”
