THE NEW TEA COMPANION BY PETTIGREW & RICHARDSON 3RD EDITION
THE NEW TEA COMPANION
A Guide to Teas Throughout the World
By Jane Pettigrew & Bruce Richardson
We are happy to announce the NEW EXPANDED THIRD EDITION of this classic guide to all the major tea-producing countries of the world and the teas they produce - from favorites such as Darjeeling, Assam, Lapsang Souchong and Earl Grey, to the more acquired tastes of Japanese green teas and the exquisitely beautiful rare Chinese white teas. The expanded edition includes several new tea producing countries, including Korea and Vietnam.
Jane Pettigrew and Bruce Richardson describe how tea is produced, processed, traded and blended. They give expert guidance on how precisely to brew the different types of tea.
The Tea Directory itself features around 140 teas. It is organized alphabetically by country, and then subdivided into region and tea type. Each tea is illustrated by close-up photography of the dry leaf, wet leaf and infusion, with an accompanying description of characteristics and brewing tips to enjoy the variety at its best. Packed with color photography.
Illustrated with beautiful photography of tea gardens, teawares and tea scenes, as well as posters, caddy designs and other tea accoutrements, The New Tea Companion is the essential guide to how life-enhancing tea is enjoyed across the world today.

This is the third time I have given this set as a gift to a friend. Same result: they feel spoiled AND they love serving to guests either at home or the office.
The only challenge was delivery: first, IVIVA staff gave incorrect info about which courier was delivering, then Purolator did not follow request to call before delivering (despite a scheduled delivery with a specific request to call), resulting in the recipient having to go to the purolator office to pick up.

I’m very happy about my order. The glasses I got are perfect, high quality and beautifull.
These mugs are so beautiful and now my daily favourites to drink out of. I love the pastel color and size.
Both items were well packed and good great, cant wait to start using them, thank you!
These glasses are very elegant and heavy like a whiskey tumbler should be! They are beautiful. Highly recommend
I’m in love with this teapot, I’ve been using it daily, keeps my tea warm long enough for me to enjoy it to the last cup. Beautiful piece. It does come with a rubber around the lid, I didn’t like that, seems like a bacteria trap so I removed it.
This looks and feel awesome. Solid weight to them and seem durable, but I still hand wash just to be safe. Admittedly, I thought the mountain design was simply embedded into the flat side of the glass, but they actually protrude 3-dimensionally inside the glass, so can be difficult to stir things thoroughly, but not a big deal. Still very cool.
We use these for ice cream, for salsas, for propagating avocado pits, as temporary storage for dry ingredients while cooking, for toppings and garnishes. They've been great! Love that they're so easy to clean.
We had a number of plastic and wooden tea and coffee scoops sitting around, but this one is the easiest to use. We're big fans!
Elegant, high quality, and totally usable. We now have two!
