The book is 75 pages and attempts to cover the tea scene in Chicago. The author, Susan Blumberg, has three main sections to the book. Each describes a different tea setting and includes a description of the service provided, hours and contact information. The tea settings covered are:
* Hotel afternoon tea
* Tea houses and restaurants
* Bubble tea
Throughout the book Susan has added interesting quotes and facts about tea. She includes a tea website section and a glossary.
The book isn't nearly as fancy as the Tea in the City series (London, Paris, New York), but I think it does a fine job of listing the tea opportunities in Chicago . That's no small feat! I really like that the book is thin and narrow. It will fit well inside a bag so that you can take it with you as you head out for your tea destinations.
I'm hoping to put this book to the test in the fall when a couple of girlfriends and I make a trip to Chicago. Maybe I'll see you then!
