This is a book I am currently reading:

For All the Tea in China
How England Stole the World's Favorite Drink and Changed History
by Sarah Rose

This is an account of Robert Fortune second trip to China in 1848
financed by the British East India Company and subsequent events. All
her research was done at the archives of the British Library. I
havent got to the part to see what became of those tea plants and
seeds transplanted in Darjeeling and elsewhere.

His first trip in 1843 was financed by the Royal Horticultural
Society.
His 1847 personal account is given here courtesy of Google Books:
