in consequence of the missive, Perhaps coffee was more expensive...., penned by Adrian
I'm not an expert in this (tho' I do like my 3 cups a day, even tho' I am an American!), but tea would have been coming from India or China by ship. I think I have read that poorer families would water down their tea and re-use the leaves to cut down on the expense.
