Taking tea has been traced back to the 10th century BC. However, its popularity in the UK was sparked by Catherine of Breganza, wife of Charles II, in the mid 17th century. The fashion spread to London coffee houses, where the whole day's tea was brewed in the morning, taxed, and kept in barrels. All things tea have progressed since then and we assure you Sussex's tea shop will brew you a fresh pot of tea and not the single brew of the day!
