Even the most cursory look at the present American “Tea Renaissance” will acquaint you with James Norwood Pratt. Once called “the Renaissance man of the tea industry”, James Norwood Pratt is the author of James Norwood Pratt’s New Tea Lover’s Treasury, as well as the award-winning James Norwood Pratt’s Tea Dictionary, which was named Best New Publication by the World Tea Expo in 2010. He is recognized as the most widely-read authority on tea and tea lore.

Better to be deprived of food for three days than tea for one.
~Ancient Chinese proverb

While coffee remains the most popular beverage in the United States, many consumers have shown an increased interest in tea as both a coffee replacement and a beneficial component of one’s diet. But no matter how insightful the research may be, few things are as compelling as an educated testimonial. Join us as we speak to the prophet of tea about the magic in these little leaves. James Norwood Pratt just might make you a believer.
