Mincing Lane is a street in the City of London, stretching from Fenchurch Street south to Great Tower Street. It was for some years the world's leading centre for tea and spice trading after the British East India Company successfully took over all trading ports from Dutch East India Company in 1799. It is mentioned in chapter 16 of Charles Dickens' Our Mutual Friend, where it is briefly described.
