✨☕イギリスのTea Culture☕✨

Hello!!☺高松ゆめタウン校です🎵

本日はロンドン出身のAlexがイギリスのTea文化☕について教えてくれました😆

Tea is the UK’s national drink. Citizens of the UK will often drink many cups a day. So why is it that the UK became famous for loving tea?

A Brief History of Tea in Britain.

The East India Company founded in 1600, was a trading group for British merchants. It was made specifically to participate in the East Indian spice trade. It later added cotton, silk, indigo and most importantly tea to its wares. And so it was in the early 17th century that tea was brought to Britain, and was an expensive item available only for the rich. It was often kept locked away to keep it safe from thieves. The ritual of drinking tea was brought to the English Royal Court by Catherine Braganza, the wife of King Charles the 2nd. After that the Aristocracy in Britain also adopted the habit. In 1717, the first tea shop in Britain was opened by Thomas Twining and eventually other tea shops started opening up, making the drinking of tea available for everyone. The British Empire further developed it’s citizens love for tea.
