Tea, Coffee and Chocolate: how the British first fell in love with caffeine

8 April @ 19:30 - 21:00

Speaker: Melanie King

Tea, coffee and chocolate play an important part in the modern British diet. Yet all three caused anxiety and debate when they arrived in London in the 1650s. Melanie explains why Europeans were at first so terrified of these drinks and describes some of ways they were consumed in the 18th century. Melanie is a full-time writer specialising in historical non-fiction.

Non-members welcome – a donation of £3.00 towards the meeting costs would be appreciated.
