American tea drinkers have moved well beyond those familiar Lipton tea bags, sampling a world of options unknown to our grandparents, yet most of us still imagine that tea grows in China (or some other faraway place). In Homegrown Tea: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting, and Blending Teas and Tisanes, British author Cassie Liversidge makes the case that anyone with a garden—or even a window sill—can grow their own. Seeds, sun and plenty of water are the necessary elements—along with the patience and care of a craftsperson. Along with how-to, Homegrown Tea is a bright, lively guide to the history of one of the world’s most popular beverages, its many varieties and health benefits.
