I recently read "For All the Tea in China" which talks about these and Robert Fortune a bit, it was a fun book. https://www.amazon.com/All-Tea-China-England-Favorite/dp/014...

If you want to read more about history of tea consumption and the role of China, India and England, I recommend reading "For all the team in china: How England Stole the World's Favorite Drink and Changed History" https://www.amazon.com/All-Tea-China-England-Favorite/dp/014... It helped me understand why green tea is dominant in China vs. black tea in most other places..
