Great Britain, Customs Tariffs: 156. The French viticulteurs had long considered all drinks together and worried not only about the effects on their trade of the obvious substitutes such as sherry, port, or beer, but also about the growth in consumption of tea and coffee. After all, in the eighteenth century, tea was as much a luxury as wine, though it had become the poor man’s drink while wine remained an expensive luxury in the nineteenth century (France, Archives Nationales F12 2484 and F12 2525).
The percentage of total tariff revenues derived from four of the largest consumption items – colonial and foreign sugar, coffee, and olive oil – remained at a fairly constant total of about 55 to 60 percent. If anything, this percentage total is larger for the latter decades, suggesting that tariff levels and their distribution are not substantially biased by the addition (or previous exclusion) of textile products that are no longer prohibited but enter at some tariff level higher than the overall average.

Revenue tariffs usually mean those that impose a uniform tax on the consumption of an item Free-trade Britain and fortress France 23 24 having no domestic substitute.

But it is troublesome to read protectionism as limited to tariffs on those items also produced in the home country.
