For All the Tea in China
fullDescription
In 1848, the British East India Company, having lost its monopoly on the tea trade, engaged Robert Fortune, a Scottish gardener, botanist, and plant hunter, to make a clandestine trip into the interior of China-territory forbidden to foreigners-to steal the closely guarded secrets of tea horticulture and manufacturing. For All the Tea in China is the remarkable account of Fortune's journeys into China-a thrilling narrative that combines history, geography, botany, natural science, and old-fashioned adventure. Disguised in Mandarin robes, Fortune ventured deep into the country, confronting pirates, hostile climate, and his own untrustworthy men as he made his way to the epicenter of tea production, the remote Wu Yi Shan hills. One of the most daring acts of corporate espionage in history, Fortune's pursuit of China's ancient secret makes for a classic nineteenth-century adventure tale, one in which the fate of empires hinges on the feats of one extraordinary man.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Sarah Rose gives a delightful presentation of her history of tea, outstanding in both the writing and narration. She starts with British botanist Robert Fortune, at sea and under fire by Chinese pirates. His advice to the captain saves the ship. Hired by the East India Company in 1848, Fortune returned to China on a mission to collect tea seeds, plants, and technology. The company planned to transplant the industry to India, where it could control the plants' production--and harvest huge profits. Rose's young American voice has a fresh, contemporary appeal, and she speaks the pervasive Chinese with comfort. The author, having preternatural familiarity with the book, has steeped an appetizing audio brew of Sino-British history, science, and introspective biography. J.A.H.
