Walking Tour about British Tea History

Would you like to learn fascinating facts about the history of tea and tea itself? This walk is almost a continuation of the South Bank walk – concentrating on site to the North of the river.

This tour will be mainly about the tea history and sites related to it, to the North of the River Thames.

On this walk you will discover:

- when and how tea smuggling flourished in the UK

- what did the English Tea Ceremony look like in the 18th century, and also when and how it was created

- how Monument and Charles II (who you can see on the Monument itself) are related to tea

- which famous person was called a "hardened and shameless tea drinker" in the 18th century

- where the house of the first governor of the East India Company stood

- where tea auctions took place for almost 319 years

- where and why the East India Company was storing its tea

- in which church most of the people from the tea world are burried, as well as mother goose, and another woman, who is thought to have brought the Great Plague into London

….. and much much more!

The cost is £20 per person and does include tea replenishment on our journey!

This tour involves more walking and visiting more sites as they are quite spread out.

I will be extremely happy to see you all!
