Can I Interest Anyone in a Nice Book of Tea?

I need to get rid of some books!   I’m going to donate a bunch to the Acton/Agua Dulce library, but first I thought I’d see if anyone is interested in tea books.

Right after I went to China in the 90’s I was intent on learning everything I could about tea.  There is a lot of interesting lore behind a cup of good tea.

The Republic of Tea’s The Book of Tea and Herbs is a quick, light introduction to varieties of tea, and it’s apparently out of print.  The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura is considered a classic; this is a first paperback edition printed in 1964.   James Norwood Pratt’s of The Tea Lover’s Treasury is considered a modern classic.   Alexandra Stoddard’s Tea Celebrations delves into the uses of tea as a community-building drink as well as a way for an individual to separate from the busy world for a few moments.

Let me know if you’d like any of these.  It’s hard to part with books, but I’d feel better knowing they’re going to good homes.
