  • Résumé

In 1848, the East India Company engaged Robert Fortune to make a clandestine trip into the interior of China - territory forbidden to foreigners - to steal the closely guarded secrets of tea. From Kew Gardens to grimy Old Shanghai, and on to the remote Wu Yi Shan hills, this title tells a tale of how one man triumphed over an exotic Empire.
