“William Ukers’ tale of how humanity acquired its favorite habit first attracts us, then absorbs us and casts a spell over us and teaches us,” said Pratt. “He regales us, in his quaint way and measured tones, with a little known epic romance — how the whole world learned to love drinking tea.” Ukers was the founding editor of the Tea & Coffee Trade Journal. He spent a lifetime studying the fascinating history of tea — its origins, manufacture and influence, and the spread of its popularity to every part of the world. This is the classic account of the legendary and true origins of tea, its widening use as a beverage, the romantic trade that grew up around it, its introduction to Europe and the changes it brought about in social and economic life around the world. Ukers goes on to highlight the numerous tributes to tea which occur throughout literature, art and music. Edited by Bruce Richardson.
