Founded to record and commemorate over 335 years of the World’s tea trade in London.

Feb 2018 City Matters reported that "a statue recognising the City’s pivotal position in the tea trade planned for 1 Undershaft have {sic} been shelved for fear of public backlash over its ties to colonialism."  The Evening Standard has images showing the statue, which is a realistic depiction of an Indian woman tea plucker with a basket full of leaves, back to back with a black London docker unloading the finished product.
