About the Author

Alex Woolf studied history at Essex University, and has written and edited many 20th century history titles for young people.


It's fascinating to learn where our food comes from, and how it lands up neatly packaged on the supermarket shelf; children can take this for granted so it's excellent to find a series that shows exactly where our food comes from ... There are fascinating snippets of information throughout the book, including, of course, how to make the perfect cuppa. * Parents In Touch *
This book certainly provides lots of really interesting facts about tea: from its early origins in China and Japan to the present day ... All this information is presented in a very readable format ... I have learnt many things about tea. That said, if you'll excuse me, I must just go and make myself a cuppa! * School Librarian *
