Tea Lecture from London

Tea began as a medicine and is now one of the most popular and widely consumed drinks in the world. Tea drinking is not only an indispensable part of daily life but, as a consequence, influenced many cultural aspects and social customs. Its history through the ages is riddled with trade wars, industrial espionage and legalised drug running.

Pour yourself a cup of tea, then tune-in and watch this great 42-minute lecture by London Museum of Natural History botanist Vilma Bharatan as she looks at the culture and history of tea, as well as the great diversity of different teas.

I loving your sight, all about tea!! As we are 3 American expat women who live in England, we have had to really have a crash course in tea when we first moved! Would love to know more about why you moved back to the states and why you are wanting to return.
