Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Trees in Britain black back re-issue 1973 Trees in Britain black back re-issue 1973 50 - What we love about Brooke Bond sets, particularly those issued in the 1960s, is the amount of thought and research put into them – they were designed to be both attractive and educational and they don’t disappoint. This set looks at British trees, but as well as picturing the full-grown tree in all its glory you also get another card showing the leaves, seeds, fruit or nuts of that tree and the backs give loads of fascinating information about the species. For instance we learn that the Larch was introduced to Britain from Europe and the houses of Venice in Italy are supported on piles of Larch. Also included are the Scots Pine, the Stone Pine which is rare in Britain, the Juniper which produces berries often used to flavour gin, the long living Yew, Common Lime, the Sycamore with its winged seedpods, Horse Chestnut, the native Holly, the rare Spindle Tree, Gean or Wild Cherry which produces glorious white blossoms, Hawthorn who’s haws are popular with birds in winter, Rowan, Crab Apple, London Plane, the Elm which was once common, but was depleted due to disease, Silver Birch, Hornbeam, the familiar Hazel, Beech, Sweet Chestnut which produces chestnuts that can be roasted and eaten, Holm, Common Oak our most well-known tree, the Strawberry Tree and Ash one of the most common trees. An album was original available to house these cards which could be obtained from grocers at 6d. These black back cards are size 68 x 36mm and the original set was issued in 1973 with a blue back.
