You can’t separate an English-woman/man from their tea – or at least not without some serious gnashing of teeth. Battles have been won and lost over this most satisfying of beverages. For a fascinating and addictive look at the British trade in opium for tea in the nineteenth century, follow this link to the Wellcome Collection in London: http://www.wellcomecollection.org/whats-on/exhibitions/high-society/high-tea.aspx. You can play 19th century opium trader and see whether you can keep Britain’s tea-addicted population satisfied.
