Tea Chest & Tea Pot

Tamara's brochure information continues on. . .

. . .Although tea and tea drinking had become widely popular well before Victoria's reign, legend has it that one of the queen's ladies-in-waiting created "afternoon teatime". Tea mania had spread across England following the arrival of Portuguese Catherine of Braganza who brought her own tea chest with her in 1662 as queen consort to King Charles II. From that time on, tea gained popularity, first among the upper classes, then among the people at large.
