In 1610, the Dutch East India Company not only brought the first tea to Europe but also the name by which it has always been known in France. In China’s Fujian Province, home to the gardens that produced the tea brought to Europe and America, the word for tea in the local dialect was pronounced “tay.” The French spelled it thé. Forty years later, just as tea was making its debut in Great Britain, tea had already become très chic at the Palace of Versailles. By 1665, Louis XIV had a thirst for tea after his doctors prescribed the beverage to counter the effects of the monarch’s frequent battles with…
