Tea has been cultivated in China and India for more than 2,000 years. In about 1840 the British began to grow tea on their own plantations in India. In the 17th century when tea was first introduced into England, many opposed it vigorously. One man in a moment of anger denounced it as “a base unworthy practice...a filthy custom.” However, the use of tea increased steadily, and before the second World War the British Isles imported about 11 pounds per person. New Zealanders, Australians and Canadians also shared the love for tea. Of course, the Chinese, Japanese and Tibetans have always been the greatest tea drinkers of all. It was not until much later that tea became a popular choice in the United States.

Charla has designed this Name Portrait with the many wonderful aspects of tea in mind. She has hand drawn the lettering and illustrated the over all picture with her pen and ink drawings, color pencil, and embellished vintage collage.

Mat colors for Tea are: double black or double cream or double pink. The picture is a quality reproduction individually highlighted and signed by the artist. It is reproduced on acid free card stock, backed with foam core and packaged in a clear envelope with a description of the picture written on the back.

This Name Portrait will fit into a standard size 8 by 10 double mat or an 11 by 14 double mat. It is not available as a framed picture but will fit into the above standard sizes. This Name Portrait may also be ordered as a 6 by 4 1/2 greeting card with envelope.
