China's tea trade stolen

By unknown | Mar 07, 2008 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

After Hong Kong was founded, China started trade with the rest of the world. Tea was one of their most important exports and was in great demand, but very expensive in Europe. The Chinese tea monopoly was broken in the 1830s when British adventurer Robert Fortune stole tea plants and took them to India. The plants flourished there and huge plantations were set up. This almost destroyed China's tea trade. - Encyclopedia of Questions and Answers, Bounty Books
