You'll have had your tea then?  Tea is Britain's favourite drink, at over 165 millions cups consumed a day, and has been top of the list since soon after it was first introduced in the seventeenth century.  In this episode, Kate and Thomas are joined by again by Anna Brereton to talk about the history of tea in England and Scotland, and we hear a little about the famous Gladstone's Land "Georgian Tea Ceremony".  Holly Black, the costume mistress, also makes another appearance to fill us in on what enlightened women would have been wearing as they sipped their Lapsang.  So grap a cuppa, sit back, and enjoy a steaming hot podcast!
