Scottish Bound Book Club: Putting the Tea in Britain by Les Wilson
Join us in reading a bit of history about Scottish adventurers and entrepreneurs who were involved in the tea trade. Perfect fall reading with a cup of tea!
From the Indian Mutiny to the London Blitz, offering a ‘nice cup of tea’ has been a stock British response to a crisis. But tea itself has a dramatic, and often violent, history. That history is inextricably interwoven with the story of Scotland. Scots were overwhelmingly responsible for the introduction and development of the UK’s national drink, and were the foremost pioneers in the development of tea as an international commodity. – Goodreads
