A Treatise on Foreign Teas

Hugh SMITH (1736 - 1789)

What would England be without tea? It is difficult to imagine, but there was a time in which tea was not quite as ubiquitous in Europe as it is today. This 1780 treatise contains some interesting observations on how tea was prepared at the time, and what the benefits of tea were described to be. - Summary by Carolin
