* I met Giles Hilton at the specialty tea counter at Fortnum & Mason in London who helped me understand some basics about different types of tea. I told him it was really precious knowledge and asked if he had written a book or could recommend any. He did recommend one by his friend Jane Pettigrew and then finally admitted he had also published something. While it was out of print, I was able to turn up a copy and found it to be really informative, illustrated, and a pleasant read. He was a lovely person who clearly had fine tastes and I felt lucky to have had the interaction.
