Stop Press! ‘Ten Poems about Tea’ is Poetry Book of the Month

Published on Monday 14 March 2011

The Observer journalist Kate Kellaway has featured Ten Poems about Tea as her Poetry Book of the Month (The Observer, 13 March 2011).  She describes it as “delightful” and “…the greatest fun: the afternoon equivalent of a pub crawl – a tea-party totter – in which each brew is different and the cast keeps changing.”  Her  lovely review makes clear that the poetry of tea is a great leveller; poets great and less well known stand, if not shoulder to shoulder, then tea-cup to tea-cup, united by a common cause.  Thank you, Kate Kellaway, for knowing your Gunpowder from your Assam and sharing these moments of “tea-drinking togetherness” with readers of The Observer.
