Enjoying a cup of our hand picked Okayti Tea from Darjeeling @summer_lodge. Darjeeling produces less than 10 Million kilos of Tea per annum. Sadly it is estimated that close to 40 million or more kilos of “Darjeeling” tea is sold on the world market. Visit @summer_lodge and you are guaranteed to taste a genuine Darjeeling, pair it to the hotels Scones with some clotted cream and jam to make it taste all the more better. #afternoonteadelight #afternoonteatime #dorset #england #countryside #countrylife #britishteatime #redcarnationhotels #pmdtea #darjeelingtea #pureunblendedtea #darjeeling

Our wonderful friends @theknutdiaries hosted Flat Matthew for an English tea. The staff is so jealous. Hey my #caninehemsworthbrother @jaggerthegreat1 let’s head on over and visit our Pops.

Let’s not forget the history of tea in India! Once the British got their hands on tea, of course it began to spread to the British colonies. One British colony in particular was India. After fourteen years of cultivating and experimenting, the British finally discovered that Indian soil was perfect for growing the Camellia Sinensis plant which is native to the region. After that, the tea industry in India really began to blossom in 1840. Many people think that the tea industry deflated once India was no longer Britain’s colony. Their tea market is still working and thriving today with over 43,000 tea gardens across Assam alone. - The image is of an Indian Tea Plantation in the early 20th century - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #chine #chinesetea #teafromchina #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty #darkhistory #twiningstea #twinings #thomastwinings #teashop #indiantea #indian #indianhistory #china #chinesehistory #teainindia

The Chinese Tea trade almost destroyed England. The demand for tea was so high in Britain, that they bought and bought and bought from the Chinese with nothing to sell. This put them in a debt situation, to which they responded with opioids. They sold Opioids to the Chinese to get them addicted, rather like an inside job, and got money off of it. That way, they wouldn’t go broke from all the money they spent on tea. Pretty messed up, isn’t it? - This image is of a Chinese tea marketplace. - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #chine #chinesetea #teafromchina #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty #darkhistory #twiningstea #twinings #thomastwinings #teashop

Tea obviously had a huge impact on British politics. In 1773, the Tea Act was passed by Parliament upon the British 13 Colonies. This taxed tea, which was a monopoly in the thirteen colonies. (The British East India Tea Company) on December 16, 1773, approximately six months after the Tea Act was passed, the colonies joined together to toss the British tea off of their ships and into Boston Harbor. The Boston Tea Party was revolt against the British to lower the unreasonable taxes on such an important drink. The fact that they use tea to slander the country as a whole says a lot, don’t you think? - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty

A sketch of the British spy, Robert Fortune. As we know, he snuck into China to steal their tea monopoly. Did you know that when he visited, he allegedly found a mysterious blue powder inside the tea, later to be discovered as cyanide? Cyanide is a deadly chemical that can cause a multitude of health problems, and was used as a dye to make the color of tea more appealing. Needless to say, after this news was released, Cyanide production in tea was outlawed in China and used in Britain to end the Chinese tea industry. - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty

Here’s a cute little example of a tea shop in Britain. Tea shops like this popped up all over the more populated parts of Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries. This was when tea really began to kick off in England. After the British spy, Robert Fortune, ruined the Chinese tea empire. Tea became a very big part of British and Indian culture and was traded to its colonies starting in the late 18th century. Don’t forget! Tea also came to India before it came to England! - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty

Throwback to that time a couple weeks ago that I had British tea time for a friend's birthday :) It was in a little part of San Diego I'd never seen before and it felt like a different world! ⁣ .⁣ One of my favorite parts of living in Chicago when I did, was that it was so big it felt like you could forever be exploring and finding new things, but also felt small enough that you became pretty familiar with neighborhoods and restaurants. I've actually never really felt that in San Diego, even though I know it's big... maybe because everything is so spread out, and the neighborhoods are a bit less charming/awe-inspiring? Just me maybe? To me, San Diego is more about the natural beauty than the urban life.⁣ .⁣ But this experience gave me that feeling of charm and discovery for a couple hours. It felt pretty good :) Cheers!⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #exploresandiego #sandiegothingstodo #teatime #afternoontea #colorfulcalliduncan #sandiegoweddingphotographer #sandiegophotographer #britishteatime

Did you know that tea didn’t appear in England until the 17th century? Before that, it was grown and utilized in China for medical use. Tea was thought to be an antidote for poison, along with its many health benefits. Originally, their tea, or 茶 (cha), was just a full leaf submerged in water. Over the centuries, tea evolved into the ground-up potent drink we love today. - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #chine #chinesetea #teafromchina #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty #darkhistory #twiningstea #twinings #thomastwinings #teashop

Here’s the last in our tea series; ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Argentinian 🇦🇷 Matè; Matè or Yerba Matè is more than just a drink in Argentina, it’s a way of life. Grown from a bush rather than a tea plant, it is drank any time of the day in special gourds and through a special straw called a bombilla. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨The Matè gourd was our inspiration behind our ritual cups, with matè featuring heavily in our daily rituals at HQ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Moroccan 🇲🇦 mint tea is at the heart of Moroccan culture and it would be difficult to spend 24 hours there without being served hot tea. Rooted deep in their hospitality culture, Moroccans serve mint tea in glass cups 3 times to their guests. Each cup symbolising a different thing; life, love & death........ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃For the Russians 🇷🇺 tea is loved almost as much as vodka. Zavarka is a strong tea served in a separate pot that allows the host to serve guests in several rounds. It is also actually considered rude to serve tea ‘naked’ and is usually accompanied with cake....... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Palo Santo tea is something we enjoy drinking here at HQ too. Using shavings from the Palo Santo wood sticks it makes an excellent refreshing and uplifting tea. Perfect for calming, grounding and rituals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚡️How do you like your tea?⚡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LOVE✨HONOR✨ENJOY . . . . . #tea #palosanto #sacredbodyrituals #Zavarka #teaaddict #spiritual #sacredbotanicals #sacrednature #teatime #afternoontea #afternoonteatime #cathartic #meditation #selflove #retreats #japanesetea #naturalcures #japaneseteaceremony #festivals #burningman #tearitual #chinesetea #britishteatime #dailyrituals #sage #smudging #moroccantea #yerbamate

🍃”When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment?” - Muriel Barbery . . . . . . . . #tea #palosanto #sacredbodyrituals #Zavarka #teaaddict #spiritual #sacredbotanicals #sacrednature #teatime #afternoontea #afternoonteatime #cathartic #meditation #selflove #retreats #japanesetea #naturalcures #japaneseteaceremony #festivals #burningman #tearitual #chinesetea #britishteatime #dailyrituals #sage #smudging #moroccantea #yerbamate

🍃We created our mango wood cups with ritual in mind. And what ritual is more popular than tea? So we thought we’d share with you some tea rituals from around the globe that has inspired us here at SBR 🍵 🌎. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃The masters of tea ritual and ceremony are of course the Japanese 🇯🇵. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃The Matcha Ceremony consists of serving green tea to a small group of people in a purpose built tea house. The ritual is formal and taken very seriously. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃China 🇨🇳 the founders of tea, are one of the biggest producers of tea varieties in the world, some of which can fetch up to $35k per ounce such as Da Hong Pao, considered the finest Oolong in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Cha Dao or the ‘art of making tea’ was one of the most important cultures adopted by the Japanese. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃They don’t beat the Indians though who produce and consume the most tea than any other country in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Indian 🇮🇳 Chai is the national drink and served on literally every street corner and served at all times day and night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃The British 🇬🇧 took on the love of tea from India during the days of the British Empire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃Afternoon Tea (around 4pm) served with sandwiches and cake and High Tea (between 5-7pm) served with a hot dish, were popular daily events for high society and now big on tourist bucket lists visiting London. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃For the average British folk, tea is drank anytime during the day and usually always offered to guests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍃See our next posts for more tea cultures. 🍵 ☕️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LOVE✨HONOR✨ENJOY . . . . . #tea #palosanto #sacredbodyrituals #veganproducts #teaaddict #spiritual #sacredbotanicals #sacrednature #teatime #afternoontea #afternoonteatime #cathartic #meditation #selflove #retreats #japanesetea #naturalcures #japaneseteaceremony #festivals #burningman #shamanism #chinesetea #britishteatime #dailyrituals #sage #smudging #plantmedicine #afternoontealondon

It’s tea time, darling! ☕ Das Vereinigte Königreich gilt schon seit dem 18. Jahrhundert als ein Zentrum rund um den Tee. 🌿 Bei den Briten geht der einfach immer: Zum Frühstück, zu besonderen Anlässen, einfach so Zwischendurch – ganz nach dem Motto „Keep calm und drink tea“ eben. 😉 Am liebsten trinken sie Schwarztee, der auch gern länger in der Kanne vor sich hinziehen darf. Dazu gibt’s Teekuchen oder Teebrot: Hefegebäcke, die entweder süß oder salzig sind. Fun Fact: Milch im Tee ist sehr beliebt, allerdings scheiden sich die Geister, ob denn nun Tee zuerst oder Milch zuerst in die Tasse kommt. 🤔🥛 Wie siehst Du das? #5cups #teatime #teekultur . . . . . #schwarztee #traditionaltea #tee #tea #teatime #teatimewithfriends #zeitfürtee #wirliebentee #butfirsttea #welovetea #tealover #wissenswertes #funfact #goodtoknow #britishtea #britishteatime #teawithmilk

Drinking tea is such a big part of British culture, it's unrealistic to tell patients to cut tea out of their diet completely. On the other hand, we are all well aware of the staining tea causes on our teeth. A more realistic piece of advice is to rinse your mouth after you've had your tea. That way most of the chromogenic substances will be washed away instead of adhering to your teeth for hours, which would eventually cause staining. In fact, rinsing after eating or drinking anything would be even better! #tea #british #britishtea #britishteatime #britishculture #tealover #tealovers #whiteteeth #whitening #whiteningteeth #dental #dentist #dentistry #oralhygiene #oral #teeth #teethcleaning #teethstains #teethstainremoval #teethstain #whiterteeth #teatime #oralhealth #oralhealthcare #teastain #teastaining #teastained #teastains #realadvice #reallifetip

This is a picture of Thomas Twining’s tea shop in London, England. This shop is claimed to be the first tea shop ever opened in England. It is said to have opened in the year 1706, when tea had just begun to enter public popularity in England. This is when China still had full control of the tea industry and England began to buy it from them. - #tea #historicaltea #historyoftea #history #historyaccount #historymeme #chine #chinesetea #teafromchina #britain #britishmemes #chinesetea #britishteatime #revolutionarywar #teawar #bostonteaparty #darkhistory #twiningstea #twinings #thomastwinings #teashop

This image, from a book published in 1851, depicts a Chinese tea plantation. These riddled the countrysides of China because of the high demand for Chinese tea globally. - Up until the Great British Tea Heist in 1848, China had full control of the tea industry. Robert Fortune, a British spy, arrived at a green tea factory in China dressed in a mandarin garb to blend in and disguise himself.

This is an image depicting British/ Scottish Botanist, Robert Fortune. Fortune was a spy for the British . In 1848, Fortune disguised himself and snuck into the interior of China to gain insight of the Chinese tea industry and its great success. The goal of the mission was to steal Chinese marketing strategies and form a monopoly in England, and getting money from trade with other countries. As tea increased in popularity overseas, the more of a goldmine its business became for the British.
