Join us for a discussion of For All the Tea in China: How England Stole the World’s Favorite Drink and Changed History by Sarah Rose.
Through the adventures of Robert Fortune, a nineteenth-century plant hunter, the reader learns a delicious brew of information on the history of tea cultivation and consumption in the Western world. Rose’s book is certain to draw the attention of history buffs, foodies, avid travel-literature fans, followers of popular science, and perhaps even business-interest book consumers as she reconstructs what she posits as the “greatest theft of trade secrets in the history of mankind.”
–Brad Hooper (Booklist)
