Events at this Venue


Petersham Nurseries and Canton Tea go back many years together, to when Canton's Founder, Jennifer Wood, first delivered artisan Chinese tea to the Teahouse - by bike.

Now Canton is established as one of the UK's premium tea companies. During this event Jennifer will take you through a lively insight into the tea world. Starting with the Chinese who cultivated tea over 4000 years ago, we will discuss early tea-drinking among the British aristocracy, the subsequent decline in tea quality and why now, there is renewed interest in handmade, whole leaf tea.
