Tea-drinking enjoyed an upsurge in popularity in Britain in the mid-19th century, when it became known as the national beverage. An increase in the demand for tea, as well as the British East India Company's loss of their monopoly on tea trade with China, led the British to consider cultivating tea in their colonies in northeastern India. There, the weather was ideal for tea production. Indian tea soon constituted a significant amount of the tea consumed in Britain.
