Thank you again for bringing this joy into my life.

...I want to finish with how much I do love Henrietta Lovell's book. Her prose is lovely, just lovely, excellent writing, so engaging and inviting, so exciting to explore with her and also so much fun to read. She knows just what to say and what to include, how far to go. I love how she ended the book, with such hope and pragmatism, and fueled with optimism. She must be wonderful to know!

An Exceptional Book

I have read this book twice and am now in the process of listening to it on Audible. It's beautifully written, and read for that matter, and when I'm in this book I feel I'm definitely in a better place. Henrietta's drive, passion and love for life are breath-taking. She is poetic and candid and takes her readers on a fascinating journey around the world and teaches us so much about the wonders of tea as well as her own life. I am now a proper tea convert and she does sell exceedingly good tea!

Infused: Adventures in Tea is the follow-your-bliss story of how she got started, and her globe-trotting quest for the finest leaves.

Henrietta Lovell might add: so are teabags. Even in her native Britain, she notes, people have been settling for bad tea for years. Through her own business, called Rare Tea, Lovell is on a mission to change that. Infused: Adventures in Tea is the follow-your-bliss story of how she got started, and her globe-trotting quest for the finest leaves. Lovells memoir is packed with fascinating history, along with precise descriptions of tea varieties and how best to prepare them. Water temperature counts (she condemns boiling), as do the timing and number of infusions. The reader follows Lovell to tea-growing regions in India, China, South Africa, and beyond. In her drive to get loose-leaf tea into the finest restaurants, she wooed top chefs with imaginative pairings. (Green tea is best with smoked salmon.) She also landed some big-name clients. Working closely with Momofuku, she devised a cold-brew technique now used to make the restaurants iced tea. The self-styled Tea Lady is no teetotaler. In Tokyo, a night of drinking at ******* nearly caused her to miss an important meeting with Noma, which was planning a pop-up restaurant there. Lovell survived, and ultimately conquered even Paris. She writes proudly of winning over a roomful of French chefs with a tea-and-caviar tasting.
