Publisher's Summary

Do you crave caffeine?

Are you the kind of person who can’t function before that first fresh, aromatic, piping hot cup of coffee?

Do you enjoy a refreshing cup of tea in the afternoon or a cold glass of Southern sweet tea on a hot day?

What if I told you that you can grow tea and coffee from the comfort of your own backyard?

Let me tell you the story about how I learned all about tea and coffee (too much, probably) and how I could grow it for myself. I do own a sizeable crop of tea and coffee trees, and I can confidently say that I can entertain my friends with my homebrewed caffeine.

In this Grow Your Own Caffeine book, I tell you the story about my foray into horticulture when I thought that I could, never in a million years, possess a green thumb.

Along with the more humorous anecdotes of how my marvelous venture came to be, I share with you my extensive research.

You’ll learn what I know about tea and coffee, as I obsessed over this topic for years:

  • The history, culture, and customs surrounding tea in the world
  • The history and folklore of coffee
  • Exactly how I set up my growing operation
  • What to expect while keeping your plants alive and thriving
  • How to tell a quality tea
  • How to harvest and process tea and coffee at home
  • The health benefits (and drawbacks) of tea
  • How to judge the quality of tea

Throughout the whole book, you’ll listen about my valiant attempt at taking on what seems to be an impossible task. If I can do it, you can, too!

As a bonus, I included an appendix about how to detect different grades of tea leaves.

I can confidently say that this was the craziest, yet most fulfilling undertaking that I have ever tried in my life.

Some say it was a mid-life crisis; some say it was foolhardy. I say it was good to the last drop!
