This four-volume collection takes as its starting point the earliest substantial descriptions of tea as a commodity in the mid-17th century, and ends in the early 19th century with two key events: the discovery of tea plants in Assam in 1823, and the dissolution of the East India Company's monopoly on the tea trade in 1833.
