Tea was the polite social beverage of 18th century. Owning the expensive commodity was a mark of status and drinking it came with expected customs, manners, and specific equipment. From pots to cups, to mote spoons and more, these items were as practical as they were beautiful, and often became treasured items and family heirlooms. Join Tea Master Bruce Richardson and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for this one-hour presentation as they share anecdotes and information about tea customs, tea wares and tea drinking, with a special look at some tea-related historical artifacts of such notable names as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
