The Politics of Tea: The East India Company and British Tea Culture

December 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

For all its genteel connotations, the history of tea is steeped in espionage, rebellion, and the rise of an Empire. Join Anglophile and former UK resident Claire Evans to explore the background of the most lucrative corporate venture the world has ever known and the product it brought to the West at any cost. With a nod to the popular “Bridgerton” series, learn how tea infused British society from top to bottom and what to expect should you ever find yourself at afternoon tea.

No charge. Online via Zoom. Valid email required to register. RSVP: at the Library, online, or by calling: 860.584.7787 x 3.
