Commentaires : Tea and coffee were available at an early date and chocolate was mentioned as early as 1800. The historian William Canniff, writing in 1869, said, 'Tea, now considered an indispensable luxury of every family, was quite beyond the reach of all for a long time because of its scarcity and high price.' The earliest tea in the province was China tea. There was no other till the first Indian tea was sold in London in 1839. As Indian tea for some time cost just as much as China tea and as people were used to the latter it had a small sale at first. Eventually it became the custom to mix the two. ..In the 1840s and 50s all tea was much cheaper and became the usual beverage in middle-class houses."
