From its humble origins over 5000 years ago in China, tea has spread across the globe to become the world’s most consumed beverage. Touted variously as a miracle cure, a path to enlightenment, and as the cause of both the downfall and the salvation of the working man’s body and soul, few products can claim to have had such an impact on the lives of ordinary people.


Explore with us the dramatic history of tea, the many stories and legends surrounding its consumption and trade, and the important role it plays in economics, pharmaceutical research, the cosmetics industry and, of course, homes and offices, on a daily basis.
