Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum

(2)

The Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum was a museum in southeast London. It was the world's first museum completely devoted to the history of tea and coffee. It covered 400 years of commercial and social history of two important commodities in the world, since their arrival in Europe from Africa and the Far East.The museum was opened by Edward Bramah in 1992, 40 years after he had first had the idea. It was formerly at Butler's Wharf. It then moved to 40 Southwark Street in SE1, very close to London Bridge station and Borough Market. At this location the museum and tearoom would open daily serving coffee and tea.Edward Bramah died aged 76 at Christchurch, Dorset on 15 January 2008. Despite his illness, Bramah had been working on a book which was to be called "Britain's Tea Heritage".The museum closed, according to its website for redevelopment and/or possible relocation until 2009. However, it was still closed as of April 2011, occupied by a builders merchant high street shop. Its new location and terms of business are still being agreed with Southwark Council.
