"A thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa See explores the lives of a Chinese mother and her daughter who has been adopted by an American couple. Li-yan and her family align their lives around the seasons and the farming of tea. There is ritual and routine, and it has been ever thus for generations. Then one day a jeep appears at the village gate--the first automobile any of them have seen--and a stranger arrives. In this remote Yunnan village, the stranger finds the rare tea he has been seeking and a reticent Akha people. In her biggest seller, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, See introduced the Yao people to her readers. Here she shares the customs of another Chinese ethnic minority, the Akha, whose world will soon change. Li-yan, one of the few educated girls on her mountain, translates for the stranger and is among the first to reject the rules that have shaped her existence. When she has a baby outside of wedlock, rather than stand by tradition, she wraps her daughter in a blanket, with a tea cake hidden in her swaddling, and abandons her in the nearest city. After mother and daughter have gone their separate ways, Li-yan slowly emerges from the security and insularity of her village to encounter modern life while Haley grows up a privileged and well-loved California girl. Despite Haley's happy home life, she wonders about her origins; and Li-yan longs for her lost daughter. They both search for and find answers in the tea that has shaped their family's destiny for generations. A powerful story about a family, separated by circumstances, culture, and distance, Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane paints an unforgettable portrait of a little known region and its people and celebrates the bond that connects mothers and daughters"--"A thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa See explores the lives of a Chinese mother and her daughter who has been adopted by an American couple"--… (més)

Solid historical fiction about the history of tea leaves and a family who lived in a remote Chinese village. I did learn a lot of the process of tea making and the culture of the tribes. While not a page turner, I'm thankful I read it. ( )

I enjoyed the story line and all the information about the Akha people. Information about the tea growing, processing, and selling very interesting. Once the main character left the village, the story line of the characters became too predictable. ( )

This is the story of girl growing up in a minority group who reside in the hills of China and sell their tea leaves. I learned a lot about the history of tea as well as traditions in a culture I knew very little about. Overall I'd give it 3 1/2 stars. ( )

I was a fan of Snowflower and the Secret Fan, but Tea Girl was a real let down. It's the story of a rural Chinese girl/woman and the daughter she gave up at birth. And there's tea. Lots of tea. This was a very fast read and the plot does move along. Maybe a good airplane or vacation read. But I found the plot devices--like the letters used to hurry along the plot without having to tell the story--obvious and tiresome. All the fairytale events-- like the romance with the super-rich Jin, were silly and unbelievable. You could see the ending coming 200 pages away. After the subtle and surprising plot twists and turns of Snowflower, Tea Girl seemed rushed and poorly thought out. ( )

4 stars

It’s definitely a Lisa See book. The female protagonist has a close childhood friend who follows a very different life path. As adults, their relationship sours causing a predictable conflict. I’m becoming a bit tired of this trope. Fortunately the relationship between Li-yan and Ci-Teh is a minor subplot of this multi-generational story.

Li-yan is born into an isolated Chinese minority, the Akha. Isolation has prevented most modern changes to their traditional tea farming culture, but drastic change is coming. For most of the book, I felt that Li-yan was the unfortunate victim of her female statis, the restrictions placed upon her by the ancient culture, and the demands of the 21st century. It was never a happy story, even when Li-yan achieved some success and security. Li-yan seems to feel the impact of every social and economic change that takes place in her lifetime. It’s a lot to put on a single character. But, I do feel that I learned things about China that I might have known, but did not comprehend.

I enjoyed the details of the traditional Akha culture. I’m a tea drinker, so I thought the details of tea growing were interesting. I would have liked even more detail about the ecological and economic consequences of tea consumption, but I imagine I need a non-fiction book for that information. As a Southern California resident, I could vouch for the reality of the locations and upscale suburban atmosphere when the story moved away from China. The adolescent Haley annoyed me. I felt she and her adoptive parents were too stereotyped; their story seemed a bit too convenient. Despite a sense of fictional contrivance, Haley’s story addressed many issues of international adoptions. They are important concerns; which is why the book’s neatly tied up conclusion was disappointing. ( )

When a son is born,
Let him sleep on the bed,
Clothe him with fine clothes,
And give him jade to play . . .
When a daughter is born,
Let her sleep on the ground,
Wrap her in common wrappings,
And give her broken tiles to play . . .
