MAJESTEA

The Heritage Collection

Since the Colonial age of the British Empire, the tradition of tea drinking has been popular amongst aficionados of the era who experimented with this classic beverage and made it popular across the world. Officers of the highest order from the British colonies journeyed back to the kingdom with the finest teas from plantations. Piccadilly, being the centre of the royal city, offered them at numerous tea houses. These were savoured with much fanfare amongst admirers of unique blends.

The History & Culture of English Tea

The recognition of tea in England from 1662 entered the king's consort Catherine Braganca, that was well known in Portugal, the home of Catherine.

Learning about the preferences of the Royal family, the British East India Company to get the goodwill of his Majesty, for two years 1664-1666 they presented as gifts to the court tea from the Chinese plantations. Until 1668, it was the only ship tea to England, and only in 1669, the year the company received a monopoly on the turnover of tea and began to import it into the country.

In those days tea was the perfect gift since levied a huge tax on the import and was available only for the elite. Tea was valued for its unusual aroma, pleasant after taste and exceptional healing properties of the drink.

Since the end of XVIII century after the reduction of the tax tea became available to the common population and the popularity of tea in the country has increased dramatically.

Till the mid XIX century tea was supplied in the UK only from China. But slowly the British began to develop tea production in their colonies in India and Ceylon, and blends based on Indian and Ceylon teas became more popular than Chinese tea.
