- The Remarkable History of the Plant that Took Over the World
- By: Alan Macfarlane, Iris Macfarlane
- Narrated by: James Adams, Kelly Birch

From Darjeeling to Lapsang Souchon, from India to Japan-a fresh, concise, world-encompassing exploration of the way tea has shaped politics, culture, and the environment throughout history. From the fourth century BC in China, where it was used as an aid in Buddhist meditation, to the Boston Tea Party in 1773, to its present-day role as the most consumed substance on the planet, the humble Camellia plant has had profound effects on civilization.
