Combo - The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane (Novel) + Pu-erh
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See - This book is not only a thoroughly enjoyable read but also is full of so much information about Chinese History and Tea - especially Pu-erh, Yunnan Province and the Akha people. It explores family and mother-daughter relationships, adoption, the impact of the modern world on minority populations and the development of culture. It is sometimes tragic but overall you are left with a sense of genuine feelgood warmth.
A Pouch of Loose Leaf Pu-erh Tea completes this combo - making it a wonderful gift to yourself or someone else special!
