Book Description
What is it about tea that makes it so popular the world over? Tea-drinking runs ,like a vein through the cultures of East and West, the focus of pleasure and leisure, and the inspiration for a variety of customs and ceremonies of its own. Tea has indeed influenced the course of history, shaping trade routes and contributing to the causes of the Opium Wars, which saw China reduced from a great imperial power to a shadow of its former self. IN the West we owe the vogue for chinoiserie and 'japanning', the development of porcelain, and the design of clippers like the Cutty Sark indirectly to the craze for tea.
