2 posts in this topic

A 374-year-old bill with "one of the earliest" mentions of tea in England has been unearthed in an archive.

A curator from Temple Newsam House, near Leeds, found the 1644 bill for medicinal ingredients bought by the estate.

Rachel Conroy found mention of bottles of China drink, the old name for tea, in the West Yorkshire Archives.
