In this talk, Professor Mair discusses the Belitung shipwreck, a prominent theme in his co-authored book “The True History of Tea”. The shipwreck yielded the biggest single collection of Tang dynasty artifacts ever found in one location and a priceless insight window into the history of tea of China and the world during the early 9th Century.
