Tea and tea drinking by Alfred Reade (1851 - 0).

Not a complete history of tea, but a pleasant diversion concerning tea, the pleasures found in its drinking, effects, benefits, cautions, etc. Sprinkled with poetry and excerpts from historical personages and the occasional sermon. ( KevinS)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100371652
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Nothing here about herbal teas, as far as I know. I'll have to search for that while I'm drinking my herbal teas this winter during the cold, wind-blown evenings. Nothing like a hot mug, eh?

Thank you! I hope this will be a popular one, but I am a poor judge. It's a bit technical at times, but still has its charm.

MW is set up. Looks like a short and sweet book. I added a genre that seemed to me to fit. (These can still be altered later if needed.) See below the MW and let me know what you think.

I am sitting here enjoying my cup of tea as I write this. I was debating whether to ask for chapter 3 on Tea Meetings or chapter 7 on Friends and Foes. They both look interesting. I guess I'll go with 7 unless you want to give me both or neither.

Thanks,

M

You have 7 with 3 as always an option. (well, until someone else grabs it!) Thank you!
