    DescriptionIn 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.

    Review quote
    "Sarah Rose gives a delightful presentation of her history of tea, outstanding in both the writing and narration.... The author, having preternatural familiarity with the book, has steeped an appetizing audio brew of Sino-British history, science, and introspective biography." ---AudioFile Earphones Award Winner
