Tea History Documentary on the BBC

Click image to see a preview.
English comedian Victoria Wood presents a two part documentary about the history of tea. In Victoria Wood's Nice Cup of Tea, Wood travels the world to explore Britain's love affair with tea. She visits chai wallahs, opium smokers, Assam tea pickers and grumpy elephants, and explains how the little exotic tea leaf both united east and west and triggered wars.

This entertaining documentary aired on the BBC in April 2013.  It provides a good deal of insight into the question: just how did tea from China become England's national beverage?
