Francis H. Leggett & Co. were Importing and Manufacturing Grocers, and their name can still be found somewhere in the food distribution business. Once, though, they were suppliers of tea, and very proud of that. Their object in publishing this and other books was to bring themselves and their goods into closer relation with consumers at a distance from New York; and incidentally, to provide readers with interesting information respecting the food which they eat and drink. This volume contains a wealth of information on tea -- its origins, cultivation, properties, and nature. Bon appétit. . . !
