RHUBARB - During the three centuries before the nineteenth, China had become so cut off from Europe that senior mandarins were quite unsure where Britain was. They’d even been told that the western barbarians needed to import herbal rhubarb from China (a medicine), and that they would die if they couldn’t get it.
