This poetic picture book takes children of all ages on an adventure around the world to discover new cultures and friends through tea. Did you know that po cha, the traditional tea in Tibet, is thick and salty like soup? Or that in Iran, tea is served with a rock? (A rock candy, that is!) Or that afternoon tea was dreamed up in England by a duchess who complained of being hungry between lunch and dinner? Teatime Around the World welcomes the youngest of readers with simple, vivid poetry complemented by unique facts about different tea cultures. Vibrant, detailed pictures by Chelsea O’Byrne bring to life debut author Denyse Waissbluth’s joyous celebration of diversity and deliciousness.
Denyse Waissbluth is a former journalist who has enjoyed tea in twenty countries, including China, where she studied tea culture. She lives in Vancouver, BC.
Chelsea O'Byrne is an illustrator and tea enthusiast who lives in Vancouver, BC. She is the acclaimed illustrator of four books, including Hello, Crow! by Candace Savage (Greystone Kids, 2019).
