The East India Trading Companies:

Given the opportunity by the East India Companies, the originality of tea comes from Chinese green or black tea which has been known before the arrival of European businessmen on the Persian Gulf. The Dutch East India Company received its tea from China which allowed the company to trade a variety of teas like the Bohea tea, for example. The Bohea tea, made popular through Asian influence, found its way to Iran. Given its wide varieties, the Dutch East India Company was able to prosper with substantially high demand for the tea leaves. The company began growing in 1600 when Queen Elizabeth I created the British East India Company to trade with Asia. The company was meant to break the Dutch monopoly’s spice trade in the East Indies; instead, the company created its own monopoly in India. After acquiring trade privileges from the Mughal emperors, the company was soon getting large profits from its Indian exports. (Kyle Vale)
