From the Author:

'Tea puts a cup of now in your hands' Anon.

This is what I began to discover back in 2010 when I started writing 'Distinguished Leaves: Poems for tea-lovers'.  

But sometimes we don't know what we're drinking... or we're scared to try something new. Loose leaf tea can be like that. It was for me. That's why I wrote the book as a primer for myself to learn something about tea, and also about the different forms of poetry too! Later I discovered it was a perfect match, poetry and tea have gone together like scones and jam since the 7th Century.

Two new books are brewing, continuing my tea adventures and what relevance they have to life itself, particularly you! But this is a great place to start - I even got a Buddhist nun to write a piece explaining exactly how to make a simple, fine cup of tea.

From the Inside Flap:

Our dance through life is infused with tea, whether lovers' tea sipped from a shared mug or a favorite blend drunk to restore flagging spirits...

Effortlessly making 'posh teas' and sophisticated verse accessible, 'Distinguished Leaves' is quintessentially British - romantic and quirky. 

But it also takes us across the world and back in time to the teas and tea masters of the Far East where we discover why 'Fortune Favours the Tea'. Like tea, this book is much more than the sum of its parts.

Buy, brew, read and relax.
