Of particular interest to me was the time in history when tea was the preferred drink of the temperance movement. Tea replaced alcoholic beverages as the regular drink for those British people who couldn't drink the ubiquitous dirty water.
The only disappointment about this book was there was no social history of tea in China, Korea, and Japan. That's too wide a scope for a single volume, perhaps. But it's a must-have for anyone who wants to see what tea consumers throughout Western history have seen of the drink.
