Victorian Christmas Tea this Saturday, December 19th!
According to historians, the discovery of tea was in 2737 BC by Emperor Shen Nong, when some tea leaves floated into a pot of boiling water. It was not until mid-1600s that tea reached England. The first known record of tea being imported to England was granted by Elizabeth I in 1637. Tea once symbolized royalty and only practiced among those of wealth and class but it eventually spread to the working class.
