Book Description :

"If ever there was a book to read in the company of a nice cuppa, this is it." -The Washington Post In the dramatic story of one of the greatest acts of corporate espionage ever committed, Sarah Rose recounts the fascinating, unlikely circumstances surrounding a turning point in economic history. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the British East India Company faced the loss of its monopoly on the fantastically lucrative tea trade with China, forcing it to make the drastic decision of sending Scottish botanist Robert Fortune to steal the crop from deep within China and bring it back to British plantations in India. Fortune's danger-filled odyssey, magnificently recounted here, reads like adventure fiction, revealing a long-forgotten chapter of the past and the wondrous origins of a seemingly ordinary beverage.

Book Description :

Robert Fortune was a Scottish gardener, botanist, plant hunter - and industrial spy. In 1848, the East India Company engaged him to make a clandestine trip into the interior of China - territory forbidden to foreigners - to steal the closely guarded secrets of tea. For centuries, China had been the world's sole tea manufacturer. Britain purchased this fuel for its Empire by trading opium to the Chinese - a poisonous relationship Britain fought two destructive wars to sustain. The East India Company had profited lavishly as the middleman, but now it was sinking, having lost its monopoly to trade tea. Its salvation, it thought, was to establish its own plantations in the Himalayas of British India. There were just two problems: India had no tea plants worth growing, and the company wouldn't have known what to do with them if it had. Hence Robert Fortune's daring trip. The Chinese interior was off-limits and virtually unknown to the West, but that's where the finest tea was grown - the richest oolongs, soochongs and pekoes. And the Emperor aimed to keep it that way.

Book Description :

I was born in 1947 to a mother from Barnsley and a father from Essex. I have 3 great loves in my life: Barnsley FC, Yorkshire County Cricket Club and my wonderful wife. My wife is my rock; Yorkshire CCC are my summertime passion; the Super Reds break my heart year after year- but I wouldn't swap them for any other team in the world. I have tried to look at the world of business through the gaze of a mixture of reality, humour and, on occasions, sheer disbelief. Every word and every event documented is the absolute truth. If you enjoy reading this book half as much as I enjoyed writing it, then I will have achieved more than I could ever have hoped for.

Book Description :

A dramatic historical narrative of the man who stole the secret of tea from China In 1848, the British East India Company, having lost its monopoly on the tea trade, engaged Robert Fortune, a Scottish gardener, botanist, and plant hunter, to make a clandestine trip into the interior of China—territory forbidden to foreigners—to steal the closely guarded secrets of tea horticulture and manufacturing. For All the Tea in China is the remarkable account of Fortune's journeys into China—a thrilling narrative that combines history, geography, botany, natural science, and old-fashioned adventure. Disguised in Mandarin robes, Fortune ventured deep into the country, confronting pirates, hostile climate, and his own untrustworthy men as he made his way to the epicenter of tea production, the remote Wu Yi Shan hills. One of the most daring acts of corporate espionage in history, Fortune's pursuit of China's ancient secret makes for a classic nineteenth-century adventure tale, one in which the fate of empires hinges on the feats of one extraordinary man.

It seemed as if by some magic though, that we laboured initally against a tide of administration, before we found ourselves in this land of ancient wonder. Our life here is the theme of this story, It was not always beautiful. It was at times frustrating, and often totally confusing and overwhelming. One thing is is for certain - It was never boring. China, the people, the expats and friends that we made have left an indelible (red) smudge on the fabric of my memory. A memory that I would not trade...Not for all the tea in China...."

Book Description :

A pioneer shares the secrets to creating jobs and reaping profits doing business with China Is China a threat to America’s economic future? Just the opposite, says international businessman Jeremy Haft. China is a boon for business: the opportunity of a lifetime to create jobs, build value, and make money. All the Tea in China demonstrates America’s overwhelming competitive advantage over China in the global economy. And it highlights the many market opportunities for companies of all sizes, in all sectors. China is far and away the fastest growing market for U.S. goods and services in the world. Despite the good news, China remains one of the most challenging operating environments, and it’s easy to make costly mistakes. Haft demonstrates how to avoid the pitfalls, providing an industry-by-industry guide to buying from, selling to, and competing with the Chinese. The book is also filled with funny stories of Haft’s hard-won lessons as a China business pioneer. It’s the most engaging, useful book yet on this important subject.

Book Description :

All the Tea in China - a Mortdecai novel by Kyril Bonfiglioli, soon to be a major film starring Johnny Depp 'One of the funniest writers ever' Uncut After committing a crime anyone but a close relative might forgive, Karli Mortdecai Van Cleef leaves Holland double-quick with his uncle's buckshot lodged firmly in the seat of his breeches. Discretion being the least-idiotic part of valour he decides to hide far away in London, among the tea shops and opium dens. On savouring these Eastern delicacies and knowing an opportunity when he sups upon one, young Karli throws in his lot with an opium clipper bound for China's high seas. Life on the ocean waves, however, is full of perils for an officer and his sensitive digestive tract: mountainous waves, an encounter with a malodorous slave ship, the captain's wife's pulse-racingly brief wardrobe, several hordes of pirates, mutiny, the ship's cook's fondness for curry - to name but a few. All the Tea in China is a swaggering, rip-snorting, buckler-swashing tale about one of the men who - for a reasonable fee - made Britain great. 'For those who have learnt to relish his elegant, nasty thrillers, Bonfiglioli is a name hard to forget. This farrago represents a change from the thrillers - a good clean salt-water yarn for the decadent' Irish Press 'Shows his customary inventive comedy and zest for language' Sunday Times 'Bonfiglioli deserves better than cult status' Independent Kyril Bonfiglioli was born on the south coast of England in 1928 of an English mother and Italo-Slovene father. After studying at Oxford and five years in the army, he took up a career as an art dealer, like his eccentric creation Charlie Mortdecai. He lived in Oxford, Lancashire, Ireland and Jersey, where he died in 1985. He wrote four Charlie Mortdecai novels, and a fifth historical Mortdecai novel (about a distinguished ancestor).
