eighty degrees issue 2 takes you on a journey to Japan — a country that has been dutifully guarding and perfecting its tea culture for generations, while letting in fresh ideas of what tea could become.
This first issue covers topics including the biggest tea producing country, visit a farmer of one of the most famous teas in China — Dragon Well, talk about a fight for the preservation of historic teas, discuss a new book about tea by an award-winning photography master, learn about the beginnings of a revolutionary tea brand that took Australia (and the world!) by storm, and many more!
This Japanese Tea book is all about the Japanese Tea tradition as well as a photo collection that will make you want to go to Japan right now, take a peek inside. The book has two agendas. First teach us everything there is to know about tea and Japanese tea culture. Second, show us how beautiful Japan is and make us all want to go there, like we didn’t before.
