CHELSEA PHYSIC GARDEN

Since 1673 Chelsea Physic Garden has occupied four acres of land on the edge of the Thames. First established by the Apothecaries in order to grow medicinal plants, this extraordinary garden in London has had wide reaching impact around the world.

Robert Fortune was a Scottish Botanist and a curator at the Chelsea Physic Garden in the 1800s.  He was also known as ‘the tea thief’ – responsible for the secret shipping of Camellia Sinensis (tea) seedlings from China to India via a ‘Wardian’ suitcase (pictured below). He was ultimately responsible for establishing the booming trade in India for black tea as a result of this: the invention of the ‘British Cuppa’. Until then, tea had come exclusively from China, its true home. An example of a Wardian suitcase can be found in the grounds of the Chelsea Physic Garden today.
