For all its genteel connotations, the history of tea is steeped in espionage, rebellion, and the rise of the British Empire. Explore the background of the East India Company— 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.
This event is part of the Across the Pond series.
