A

TREATISE

ON

FOREIGN TEAS,

ABSTRACTED

FROM

An ingenious WORK, lately published,

ENTITLED

AN ESSAY ON THE NERVES ;

ILLUSTRATING

Their efficient, formal, material, and final Causes; with the Manner of the Liquids being corrupted by corrosive Acids, and stagnated by obtuse Alkalies:

IN WHICH ARE

OBSERVATIONS ON MINERAL WATERS, COFFEE, CHOCOLATE, &c.

AND

An Investigation of the Nature and Preparation of Foreign Teas, with their pernicious Effects in debilitating the Nervous System:

INTERSPERSED WITH

THE AUTHOR'S REMARKS,

Arising from an Analysis of such Preparations as may be most beneficially substituted for INDIA TEA.

THIS SELECTION, containing the Sentiments of the many eminent Physical Professors who have written on Foreign Teas, is designed to shew, by the most forcible Arguments and distinguished Authorities, the extreme Danger to which the Public are exposed from the continual Use of an Article so pernicious and destructive to the Constitution.

[Price Six pence.]

Dr. SOLANDER's SANATIVE ENGLISH TEA.

UNIVERSALLY APPROVED and RECOMMENDED

BY THE MOST

EMINENT PHYSICIANS, IN PREFERENCE TO FOREIGN TEA, As the most Pleasing and POWERFUL RESTORATIVE,

IN ALL NERVOUS DISORDERS, HITHERTO DISCOVERED.

Our first aliment at breakfast, being designed to recruit the waste of the body from the night's insensible perspiration; an inquiry is important, whether INDIA TEA, which the Faculty unanimously concur in pronouncing a Species of Slow Poison, that unnerves and wears the substance of the solids, is adequate to such a purpose If it be not the inquiry is further necessary to find out a proper substitute. If an Apozem PROFESSIONALLY approved and recommended for its nutritive qualities, as a general aliment, has claim to public attention, certainly Dr. SOLANDER'S TEA, so sanctioned, is the most proper morning and afternoon's beverage.

Prepared for the Proprietor by an eminent Botanist.

Sold Wholesale and Retail by the Proprietor's Agent, Mr. T. GOLDING, at his Warehouse for Patent Medicines, No. 42, Cornhill, London; and Retail by Mr. F. NEWBERY, No. 45, St. Paul's Church Yard; Messrs. BAILEY'S, Cockspur street; Mr. W. BACON, No. 150, Oxford street; Mr. OVERTON, No. 47, New Bond street; and by Mr. J. FULLER, South Side of Covent Garden. Also by the Venders of Patent Medicines in most Cities and Towns, in England, Ireland, and Scotland.

Sold in Packets at 2s. 9d. and in Canisters at 10s. 6d. each, Duty included.

Liberal Allowance for Exportation, to Country Venders, and to Schools.

The native and exotic Plants which chiefly compose Dr. Solander's Tea, being gathered and dried with peculiar attention, to the preserving of their sanative Virtues, must render them far more efficacious than many similar Preparations, which by being reduced to Powder, must have those Qualities destroyed they might otherwise possess.

A Packet of this Tea at 2s. 9d. is sufficient to breakfast one Person a Month.

ADVERTISEMENT TO THE FOREIGN TEAS.

Having, in the preceding enquiry, traced, from the system of the nerves, that on their state the health of the constitution chiefly depends, our immediate concern is next to ascertain what kind of food we either adopt from choice, custom, or necessity, is the most likely to destroy the economy of the nerves. And as Foreign Teas have long been censured as being the cause of many disorders which arise from the nerves being disarranged or debilitated, an impartial enquiry is here made into the nature, preparation, and effects, of these Teas. By this investigation it will appear, that Teas imported from China and India are the most injurious of any beverage that can possibly be taken as a general and constant aliment. But, not prematurely to anticipate any part of the following subject, the Reader is most respectfully referred to the following pages for further evidence... Continue reading book >>
