TEA drinkers are getting the chance to find out about the history of their brew in Gosport.

An exhibition on the life of the drink is being held at Gosport Gallery, in Walpole Road, until Saturday.

Visitors can find out about tea smuggling, learn how tea leaves are grown and blended and find out about how it has been traded.

The gallery’s selection of china tea sets, mugs, tea cosies and caddies are also on display at the exhibition.

People can find out more about different cartoon tea characters on the gallery’s ‘mad hatters tea party table’.

There are also interactive tea-related activities in store for families young and old. Over the course of the exhibition visitors have been treated to a fancy dress tea party, a kids story-time session and a ‘time for tea’ day with songs on the history of tea.

Angela Cleife, assistant manager at Gosport Discovery Centre, which works alongside the gallery, said: ‘The response to the entire exhibition has been very good.’
