Book & Tea Combo - China - The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See plus a sampler selection of 5 Chinese Teas: Pu-erh Loose Leaf, Iron Goddess Oolong, Tarry Lapsang Souchong, Keemun, Jasmine Buddha Tears White Tea. 10-20 grams each.
I loved this book because it 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. This book also 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.
