Tea and coffee adulteration

In the past tea was adulterated with leaves from other plants including trees like ash and beech although laws were passed to prevent it. Coffee was sometimes adulterated with sheep dung. Chalk was added to flour and water was added to milk. www.localhistories.org/tea   www.localhistories.org/coffee
