MY TOP 3 FAV CHAPTERS

TYPES OF TEA: This chapter starts on page 28 of "Tea is for Everyone". The chapter begins by outlining (with a very simple diagram) the processing methods for green, white, yellow, wulong, red and black teas. The chapter then takes each tea type and explains their processing methods, their taste profiles, and even their TCM properties.

POPULAR TEA STYLES: I learned so much in this chapter; knowledge specific to each tea mentioned. I loved how the name of the tea is provided in Chinese as well as in English and even popular names are given. "Tea is for Everyone" also uses this chapter to reveal harvest periods, fragrances, cultivars, and the difference between Gongfu tea style and Gongfu tea method.

FAMOUS TEA REGIONS: This section really helped me to decide which Chinese province I wanted to visit first when planning my trip to China. This chapter begins on page 72 and reveals tea producing provinces in China and the popular teas grown in them. I like how there at least a paragraph of information about each region, but it's not an information overload. Even though, at present, my trip to China is on hold because of the deadly Coronavirus, I know now that the Yunnan province is of great interest to me.
