By Kamran Rahman VINE VOICE on 4 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is not accurately described. It seems to be a book about tea written in 1793, but is in fact a spoof from 2009. If you want to find out about attitudes to tea 200 years ago, you're better off seeking out the the authentic source material, upon which this spoof is probably based; Jonas Hanway's Essay on Tea, from 1756 which claimed that men seemed to lose their stature and women their comeliness through the use of tea.

My main problem with this book is that the language is an exaggeration of how someone in the 21st Century might think that someone in 1793 might have written - with convoluted sentence structure and overuse of adjectives. A quick look at Jane Austen, who was writing at about this time, shows that language and sentence structure were more elegant in those days.

The exaggerated language grates fairly quickly and makes this book difficult to read. If you get to the end of the book, you are left thinking that it wasn't that funny, it wasn't authentic, and really there was little point in it
