Everything You Could Possibly Want To Know
About Tea

Below are scans of all the pages of a very entertaining advertising booklet, for Tetley Tea, circa 1905 (there is no production date I could find, but the back cover and text mention the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904). The words and illustrations provide a quaint glimpse of life a century ago.

And while we're on the topic of Tea, here is a set of nicely done German poster stamps advertising Lipton's tea - I bought them in an auction of the Poster Stamp Society , and have no idea whether this is a complete set, nor exactly when they were produced, but I would guess they are from about the same time period as the pamphlet above, i.e., the end of the 19th century.
