The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and Tea Master Bruce Richardson, leads a virtual discussion focused on the origin stories of the five teas that were tossed into Boston Harbor in 1773. This 1-hour presentation explains how these teas were shipped from the same East India Company warehouses that supplied the tea caddies of both King George III and George Washington. The world knows well how Britain's love for tea gave rise to the crafting of their beloved tea culture, but history has neglected the devotion that residents of Colonial America had for their own tea ritual. Theirs was a passion that led to a "party", a revolution, and the birth of a nation. All this commotion over a simple cup of tea!
