Description
Information
Jason Goodwin, inspired by his grandmothers who spent their lives in China and India observing the customs of afternoon tea, set off to explore the relics of this imperial age and its worldwide trade, delving into the extraordinary history of tea.

Brilliantly evoking a vanished world, he follows the origins of tea, its use, influence and importance, from the Canton factories through the establishment of British India and the Opium Wars, all the way to that great tea metropolis, London.

Packed with anecdotes, fascinating historical details and wonderful personal observations, 'The Gunpowder Gardens' is informative, funny and delightful in equal measure.
