According to legend, tea was discovered by a Chinese emperor around 2300 BC. Initially used for medicinal purposes, the more well-to-do members of Chinese society began drinking it on social occasions. In the 17th Century, tea was traded with the west by China and subsequently Great Britain got a taste for it! Tea was expensive and, as a result, it was largely drunk by the aristocracy and upper classes.  Therefore, it was used sparingly and a smaller than usual drinking vessel known as a ‘teacup’ was used for the drink. Consequently, teaspoons developed to ensure the accurate and careful distribution of the leaves into the boiling water to make the drink. Initially a teaspoon measured 1 fluid dram or one quarter of a tablespoon. Subsequently they have gradually increased in size. Today’s teaspoon for example measures one third of a tablespoon. It was in the 17th and 18th Century that these spoons became known as ‘teaspoons’ and some became ever more decorative. It should be remembered that there are really two types of teaspoon.  Firstly, one measured the tea into the water.  Secondly one is used to stir the cup once the tea is poured. Modern teaspoons for everyday use are often made from stainless steel or are silver plated, but there are a large variety of collectable silver spoons available.
