Tea for the British, With a Little Twist of Suffolk - A Talk by Miriam Stead
Growing, exporting, handling and distributing tea was a large industry in the 18th and 19th centuries, when it became our national drink. Before then prohibitive tax (120%) meant that only the rich could enjoy it, hence the prevalence of locking tea caddies.
With our love of this most British of beverages, this talk is sure to be both fascinating and educational - not to be missed.
