The book is great. It has some interesting information and anecdotes, and the photography is beautiful and the layout design is also very nice.
Perhaps it is beyond the scope of this book, but I would love to have seen more about the actual processing of the tea leaves, how they are dried, roasted, smoked, fermented, etc to produce the different types of teas.
I have to nitpick to come up with criticism, but here is what I found...I apologize in advance for my mother, who has literally worked 40 years as a secretary and thus trained me to go over my written homework with a fine-toothed comb.
I'm not sure if those are mistakes, but shouldn't the forward and afterward actually be "foreword" and "afterword?" There is also a misplaced space in the text block on page 37. ...and the Goddess whispered," The key for your future...
The only reason this is noticeable is because the spacing resulted in and "endquote" being printed at the beginning of the quote.
I want to emphasize that these are silly little things that I figured I would point out in case there is ever a 2nd edition.
Anyway, great work. I can't wait to see the next book...perhaps a big coffee table book so we can really get the full impact of the photography.
You should also bring your favorite TeaChatters (and perhaps me too?) with you on your next expedition to SE Asia.
