A Brief History of Tea

Bringing colorful detail and narrative skill to this history, author Roy Moxham – once a tea planter himself – maps the impact of a monumental and imperial British enterprise.

In this book, he offers a fully fascinating, and frequently shocking, tale of England’s tea trade – of the lands it claimed, the people it exploited, the profits it garnered, and the cups it filled.

About the author Roy Moxham

Born and brought up in Evesham, Worcestershire, he went out to Africa in 1961 as a tea planter in Nyasaland, later Malawi. He spent 13 years in Eastern Africa before returning to London to set up a gallery of African art.

Following retirement in 2005 he devotes his energies to writing and giving talks. He spends half his time in London and the other half travelling, principally in India.

‘A very well-written book and enlightening on all aspects of the desirable shrub.’ Financial Times.
