Tea - an English tradition or an obsession? In this comic 'time-machine' of a show Jennifer Rose takes us from 5000BC China with the Emperor Shen Nung brewing the first cuppa through 18th century Tea Gardens, The Boston Tea Party to the Lyons Corner House and the current trend for tea bars. Through the works of Lewis Carroll, Sir John Betjemen and others, as well as songs like Everything Stops for Tea
and A Nice Cup of Tea
, sit back and be taken on a light-hearted guide through the history of this most English of refreshments.Performers Jennifer Rose.
