Henrietta Lovell is best known as "The Rare Tea Lady". She is on a mission to revolutionize 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: Adventures in Tea 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.

Henrietta Lovell left a career in corporate finance to found the Rare Tea Company in 2004. She buys rare and precious harvests from tea growers around the world and has had many adventures along the way. Her expertise is sought by the world's most prestigious restaurants and hotels, including Gordon Ramsay, Alain Ducasse, 11 Madison Park, Noma, and Claridges.

Gilbert Pilgram is the executive chef and owner of Zuni Café in San Francisco.  He started his restaurant career at Chez Panisse 32 years ago where he was their first kitchen intern.
