The Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum, London, England is the world's first museum completely devoted to the history of tea and coffee. It covers 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, formerly at Butler's Wharf. It is now located at 40 Southwark Street in SE1, very close to London Bridge station and Borough Market. The museum is open daily and the facilities include a tearoom serving coffee and tea.
Edward Bramah died aged 76 at Christchurch, Dorset on 15th January 2008. Despite his illness, Bramah had been working on a book which was to be called "Britain's Tea Heritage".
The museum is now closed until 2009 according to its web site for redevelopment and/or possible relocation.
