Description
In the 18th century Samuel Johnson confessed himself "a hardened and shameless tea drinker," ruefully admitting that his kettle had "scarcely time to cool" because he drank tea from morning until midnight. Millions of Britons share his enthusiasm, yet before the 1650s tea was unknown to the English. Why did they choose tea rather than coffee, which arrived at about the same time? Where did they buy it and how did they take it? How did afternoon tea and high tea come about, and what was the social significance of tea drinking? Claire Hopley traces the history of tea in British life primarily through novels, plays, poems, and recipes, from Samuel Pepys, who drank tea as a protection against illness, to George Orwell, who explained how to get the best out of the meager wartime ration, as well as Jane Austen's Fanny Price, Charlotte Brontė's Jane Eyre, and even J.K. Rowling's Hagrid.
