Product Description

Review

"As a devoted tea drinker, Anglophile, and history buff, I've been meaning to read up of tea's long relationship with British society. I noticed several lengthy books on the subject, but haven't picked one up until discovering the charming "Tea and Tea Drinking" by Claire Masset. The author condenses a remarkable history in this concise 56 page book... I'm a big fan of this publisher." - Andrew Brozyna, thespunkycoconut.com

Bought as a Christmas present for a tea drinking enthusiast who loved it so much. It was very accurate and knowledgeable of the history of tea drinking he says and even learnt some things he didnt know! A nice little present.

Tea Drinking in Britain and how it got started 28 Aug. 2011
By Karen L. Field - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found out how the Brits started drinking tea and how it has become the national drink. The development of tea wares was discussed as well. It explains what High Tea really is, not what most people think it is. I will next order Shire Libraries book on tea cups and also the one on tea pots. Shire Libraries have titles on a number of subjects of interest to the audience of Georgian, Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian readers as well as other crafts and collectors of things.
