Modern Tea - Lisa Boalt Richardson
We recently had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Boalt Richardson during the Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association meeting held at Tea By Two in Bel Air, MD. Lisa, a certified tea specialist and well known author on the subject of tea hails from Atlanta, GA. This was a special book launch for her newest publication, Modern Tea. Lisa has also authored Tea With a Twist and The World in Your Teacup.
Modern Tea: A Fresh Look at an Ancient Beverage is a comprehensive book that includes a variety of pertinent information for both the newbie recently introduced to the world of tea and the devoted tea enthusiast looking to enhance their education. She offers tips for purchasing tea, storing it properly, and brewing techniques. Moving beyond the cup, she shares about cooking with tea including pairing tea with chocolate. At the book launch, we had a tea and chocolate pairing guided by Lisa. We'll share that tomorrow. You can find Lisa on Facebook here: Lisa Knows Tea.
