Since history began, tea has been a much-loved and sought-after beverage. Its story is told here in fascinating detail, from its early discovery in China to its adoption in the West and final worldwide acceptance. The East India Company was a vital catalyst on the British nation's love affair with tea, which has lasted to this day, but its influence was also felt in America where the Company's tea was tipped into Boston harbour at the infamous tea party. The East India Company Book of Tea illustrates lavishly the tea story, as well as offering advice on the different varieties and the best ways of brewing tea from all around the world. Add some wonderful recipes, some strange tales and many previously little-known facts, and the stage is set for the story of tea - 'water bewitched'!
