Tea in Britain
 

Britain is known as a nation of tea drinkers despite the fact that the British were fairly late on the tea scene in historical terms. Tea was first brought to Britain in Dutch ships and soon proved that popular that the British government wanted control away from the Netherlands. This was supposedly achieved by banning the import of tea on anything but British ships. To get around this tea was transhipped in Holland to British ships. Not the fame the British wanted with tea, look up references to High tea, The Brown Betty, The American war of independence, The Opium wars. Etc, Etc. A fascinating subject.


The health benefits of tea were well known way back in the 1950's. The famous coffee house proclaimed that: Tea makes the body healthy and lusty. Tea is declared to be the most wholesome; preserving perfect health until extreme old age.
Whilst this may have been guesswork back then, the health benefits of tea are now very well known. High levels of antioxidents and slimming benefits are just two.


Just as coffee has seen a revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast beans so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening around the country, and the world.
