From the plantation to the breakfast table—the stimulating history of the world’s obsession with tea from its first discovery in China to the present day.

His book is a historical journey which includes all levels of society from the royal family to plantation slaves, revolution, and the afternoon ritual. The story he uncovered reveals a fascinating, and occasionally brutal, insight into the history of the British Empire.
