A beautiful short graphic novel full of lessons and love with gorgeous illustrations.

What an absolutely lovely little book. It's short and sweet, but the illustrations are incredible and the story seeds an expansive lore that will (hopefully) be expanded on in many more books to come.

The art is stunning, and the story is so cozy that I almost forgot I was reading and just sunk into the world for a bit. Both this and 'The Tea Dragon Festival' are excellent!

A very sweet, cozy, and heartwarming story that features beautiful illustrations and lovely, diverse characters. The tea dragons are adorable and everybody should have one.

The Tea Dragon Society follows a young blacksmith trying to find her way. The book is in a beautiful graphic novel form, split into four seasons that operate like chapters. Our young blacksmith, Greta, comes across a tea dragon in trouble, and, after returning the tea dragon to the owner, is invited to learn more about tea dragons and how to cultivate the tea.

The Tea Dragon Society follows Greta throughout the course of a year as she learns about tea dragons from Hesekiel and Erik and makes friends with a mysterious girl named Minette.

The Tea Dragon Society is about pursuing your passions, respecting others, caring for each other and your pets! It's also about learning from the past and how things were made and possibly bringing that to your future.

This is the most adorable and cutest graphic novel I've read! The artwork is adorable and the color pallets amazing. It was short and sweet but made me feel like a kid again while reading it.

5 Stars - I recommend if you enjoy cute graphic novels.

A girl named Greta finds a lost tea dragon, and returns it to the tea shop. While there she meets the owners and learns about the mysterious world of tea dragons.

This book is just very cute. The art is adorable. The dragons are adorable. The characters are diverse and interesting. If you just want to read something happy and cute, I recommend this one. Perfectly appropriate for all ages.

I can't not add this to my favourites list and gush about how much I adore this graphic novel.

Looking for fantasy? Check. An adorable LGBT relationship that involves a partner in a wheelchair? Check. People of colour? Check. An absolutely enthralling story of friendship and love that literally makes you cry? Check. Stunning art? Check.

This book has EVERYTHING. It's whimsical, yet grounded in a story that resonated so much with me. It's about love and friendship and tradition and finding out who you are. It is beautiful, inside and out, and I highly encourage everyone to read it.

PS: my dog is 100% a peppermint tea dragon. Fully convinced.

Such a sweet book with beautiful illustrations and so much diversity in the characters. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel!

So precious and sweet! The relationships between the characters are wonderful: from the bond between Greta and her mom over the blacksmithing craft; to Greta and Minette's blossoming friendship; to Hese and Erik's deep love. In this book, children and adults alike believe in and uplift one another.

I also love the theme of preserving traditional crafts, passing them down to the next generation of enthusiasts who will carry them into the future. Also, the theme of recovering and healing from trauma and pain, with patience, time, kindness received from others, and kindness toward oneself.
