Tea--A Journey in Time explains how the industry has changed over the past three centuries right up to the present day. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the quest for plants and seed of commercial importance led to the transportation of plants from one side of the world to the other. These plants and seeds were in every sense as valuable as gold and essential to the British Empire and its continuing development and prosperity.The final chapter in this fascinating book breaks new ground by examining the state of tea plantations as we enter the twenty-first century. To the keen tea drinkers, it graphically shows present-day living conditions for the workers, as well as how tea is grown and manufactured.Beautifully illustrated with fine color plates, drawings, engravings, and photographs, both past and present.
Dimensions: 120 x 870 x 1170
