come for tea

What’s the best present you’ve ever received from another tea lover? Perhaps it was a tin of a very expensive rare tea, or maybe a pretty cup and saucer, or a gorgeous teapot.

5 facts you might not know about the boston tea party

December 16 marks the anniversary of one of the most iconic events in American history. On that night in 1773, 150 men tossed 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor, and a revolution began to brew. Here is a bit of trivia about the Boston Tea Party you might have missed in American History class. 1 All the tea aboard the three East India ships in Boston Harbor came from China rather than India.
