This title presents the story of Scotsman Robert Fortune - botanist-turned-secret agent - and how he infiltrated China's hostile mountain regions disguised as a Chinese merchant. His goal was to steal China's most fiercely protected treasure, a plant as seductive as the soporific poppy: Camellia sinensis or, more simply, tea.
