About the Book

A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR
* Winner of Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards, Drink Book Award 2020 *

Henrietta Lovell is best known as 'The Rare Tea Lady'. She is on a mission to revolutionise the way we drink tea by replacing industrially produced teabags with the highest quality tea leaves. Her quest has seen her travel to the Shire Highlands of Malawi, across the foothills of the Himalayas, and to hidden gardens in the Wuyi-Shan to source the world's most extraordinary teas.

Infused invites us to discover these remarkable places, introducing us to the individual growers and household name chefs Lovell has met along the way - and reveals the true pleasures of tea. The result is a delicious infusion of travel writing, memoir, recipes, and glorious photography, all written with Lovell's unique charm and wit.

“I found myself quite caught up in her infectious enthusiasm as she ventured – twice defeating her own cancer, which tried in vain to slow her down – out into the world in search of the green tea hills in China, Japan and India, of course, but also in Malawi, Nepal and South Africa . . . This is a love letter.”
- New York Times
“Infused is steeped in adventure and brewed with love. A tell-all tea manifesto from the the tea lady herself.”
- Dan Barber, Blue Hill Farm
