A Social History of Tea by Jane Pettigrew & Bruce Richardson
Benjamin Press  

It is said that every story has two sides, and in the case of A Social History of Tea, there is the English side, as told by Jane Pettigrew, and the American side, as recounted by Bruce Richardson. Together, they cover more than five centuries of tea’s influence on both continents, as well as its Asian origins. In reviewing this book, James Norwood Pratt raves, “Here is history as it should be written . . . I daresay the saga of the subjugation of the English-speaking world by the leaf of this Asian shrub has never been better told. . . .”
