Silver Tea Pots
Tea was introduced into Europe from China with the expansion of trade in the 1600’s and was a great novelty to people used to drinking only beer, wine and posset - milk curdled with wine, ale or vinegar.
At first tea was advertised as medicinal and was supposed to cure everything from gout to various social diseases.
