Some time ago I asked you, tea lovers, for suggestions on some of the things you would like to see here and one of the answers, based on the name of this blog - "Uniquely Tea" - was a series on, well, unique teas! So without further ado, today begins a new series on teas that I consider to be unique ..... for one reason or another.
Let's start with Boston Harbour Tea, a blend of "superior teas" from Darjeeling, India and Ceylon created by Davison, Newman & Co., Britain’s oldest tea merchant . What makes Boston Harbour Tea unique? Well, just being created by Britain's oldest tea merchant (still in business today) would suffice, but it was Davison Newman & Co., Ltd., whose tea chests were destroyed in 1774 at the [Second] Boston Tea Party!
Drink Boston Harbour Tea for a small taste of American tea history. Available exclusively through the Mark T. Wendell Tea Company.
