Tea Horse Road: China's Ancient Trade Route to Tibet, by Michael Freeman & Selena Ahmed
One of the most amazing tea books we've ever seen. Although it's actually about the ancient trade route from western China to Tibet, this book focuses a lot of its energies specifically on tea and the tea trade. This book is huge, 12"x12", 540 pages and has almost 300 color photos (many full-page in size). It covers the people, the culture, the landscape, the history, the geography, and, most importantly, the tea of this amazing region and time. An astounding coffee-table book, for the tea lover.
