Publisher's Summary

Henrietta Lovell 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 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, and recipes, all written with Lovell's unique charm and wit.

Absolutely wonderful!!! A must read/ listen

I am bit of a tea nerd and this book narrated beautifully by Henrietta made me look beyond the leaves into the people actually making them and the stories related. It also got me out of the world of Chinese tea and into Malawi, Nepal, Meghalaya( where I have already contacted for the famous Cloud tea), Sikkim, Ceylon and more. Though China tea culture always fascinates me.
I think I am going to be listening to the same book at least twice more. 🙏🙏🙏

Second Infusion

I loved this book almost as much as I love tea. The only issue is that we've now only finished the first infusion of knowledge from The Tea Lady--Henrietta Lovell. I am not sure if Henrietta is interested in writing a second book, but I sure would enjoy a second infusion, or like a good rolled oolong, perhaps a 3rd, 4th, or 5th infusion.

As delightful as a cup of tea!

This book was a mesmerizing journey through a brave woman’s life and her passion to bring quality to the world. I’ve never finished an audiobook that I wanted to start again immediately as much as this one, and I’m an English literature scholar!

Simply life changing

I have started listening to this book and couldn’t stop. I have listened to it back to back in one session, and I didn’t want it to finish. The passion and knowledge of the author is truly life changing, and her performance reaches you on a personal level. This content of this book is informative, funny, real and romantic. I woke up the following morning wanting to read it again, however not until “I” had my morning cup of tea first. Best book I have read in years !!! It’s a MUST.

Amazing Read, difficult listen

I admire any author who narrates their own book but I found this difficult to hear, it was quiet and whispered. I stuck with it because the content was so good, a truly amazing journey. I was so excited to find a book like this about Tea.

Evocative journey through tea and memories

A simply exquisite book, part memoir, part history book, a sprinkling of recipes and a tour of the tea growing regions of the world. Henrietta weaves her own memories and stories through the history of tea growing and gives the most beguiling descriptions of the people, places and teas she has met along the way. I grew up in Sri Lanka and she has perfectly captured the essence of the tea country and her passion for high quality, ethically produced tea comes across in every chapter. The narration is also fantastic, the perfect soundtrack to afternoon tea.

Fall even more in love with tea

Henrietta's sultry, mellifluous voice carries you off on a magic carpet ride round the world. Her journey is epic and wondrous. it is an autobiography where you learn a lot about tea along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed. Wish more narrators were like her.
