Publisher Comments:

From the plantation to the breakfast table—the stimulating history of the worlds obsession with tea from its first discovery in China to the present day. Moxham first became fascinated by the history of tea when he applied for a job to manage a plantation in Nyasaland, Africa. 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.

About the Author

Roy Moxham spent thirteen years in Africa as a tea planter and has also been a dealer in African Arts. He is in charge of the preservation and conservation of books at the University of London Library.
