This is a collection of 23 early writings on tea in England.

The collection includes writings from the early modern period when tea was introduced from the East via the Netherlands and caused controversial argument between anti- and pro- tea drinkers, and it traces historically how tea was accepted in British society and became established as a social tradition.

The set includes not only famous books on tea by Kaempfer, Short, Twining, or Lettsome but also very rare items such as poems, manner books, medical treatise, and a review by Samuel Johnson.
