It was customary for the East India Company to bring gifts on returning ships for the Sovereign. In 1664, the Company was distressed to find that no provision of a gift for King Charles II had been made.

Flavour Profile

It was customary for the East India Company to bring gifts on returning ships for the Sovereign. In 1664, the Company was distressed to find that no provision of a gift for King Charles II had been made. Accordingly, two pounds of tea found on board were presented to the King, much to the delight of his wife Catherine of Braganza from Portugal (who had grown up with a taste for tea). She introduced tea as a fashionable drink in courtly and aristocratic circles and so began a long Royal tradition of tea drinking and the start of the British love affair with the daily brew.
