Tea and later coffee helped to revolutionise how the western world approached it’s morning routine. Now as ubiquitous as anything else in life, many people would be hard pressed to function without their morning caffeine. Given the incredible history and importance tea and coffee play in our lives currently, few know more then just a little about its origin or purpose. These days it’s hard to care about the history when we have these push button coffee machines in our homes (like those at AllGreatCoffee.com).
The Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum in London hopes to rectify that by being a fantastic source for the history of England and the tea and coffee that has become a part of the daily routine. Serving authentic British Leaf Tea, the museum provides records and memorabilia from centuries past, documenting the tea trade. With more then 400 years of history to cover, the Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum also provides an opportunity for individuals to have their tea as well. As a final note, the museum offers seminars taught by Edward Bramah regarding the history of the tea trade and a tasting session.
