Although there have been many books written about tea, works about the importance of the teapot, essential for the best flavour, are less easily found.

The book has colour illustrations of his collection of teapots, from the humblest to the more sophisticated, with introductory and accompanying text in both English and Chinese. The real novelty of the book comes in the latter part of the book when Lim shares the results of years of tests with pots and teas to make a drink that we can savour as well. 154 pages.
