The Making of Tea

Making tea was hard work. Workers in China would work for hours under the hot sun picking leaves and then they would dry the leaves. The leaves would then be transported to Canton, China to be prepared for their sea voyage to England. It would take six months for tea to be shipped from Canton, China to London, and even more to reach the American colonies.
