Boston Tea Party

Have you heard, there is a new museum that has cropped up in BostonBoston Tea Party Ships and Museum.  Just in time to celebrate the birth of our Country, a few days before July 4th I received an order of tea from Elmwood Inn Fine Teas.  The particular teas are a special blend created by the museum’s master blender Bruce Richardson.  The gift pack I ordered contained two teas which were created specifically to commemorate the opening of the museum.

The first called Abigail’s Blend (which is also the namesake of the tea room at the museum)- is a blend of Chinese black tea and also a bit of India and Kenya.

The second tea (which has become my iced tea addiction!)  Is a Strawberry & Apple loose tea.  It is an herbal blend and caffeine free.  It represents the colonists love of tea and in rebellion and boycott of England created their own blends out of herbs and fruit.

The museum looks to be an exciting and educational outlet to celebrate our beautiful nation.  I look forward to visiting in the fall!  If you are interested in reading more about it pick up a copy of  Tea Magazine, there is a great article featuring the museum as well as other interesting tidbits on tea and the world of tea.

Here’s to tea and independence:)
