A Unique Tea: Boston Harbour Tea

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.

This sounds like a unique tea that I'd like to try. London Cuppa, PG Tips and Yorkshire are British teas that I enjoy regularly and its always fun to try another. Thanks for the info.

I purchased some of this tea several years ago and served it at a Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) meeting.

Living in Boston, I've seen this tea around. I was curious whether it was just a touristy thing or actually good tea. Have you tried it?

Ah, thank you for that Duchess!

parTealady, you are welcome, and thank you for all your lovely comments when visiting Uniquely Tea!

I hope you like it, Phyllis!

Linda, I handed out free samples of this tea when I spoke to a DAR group not long ago. It's perfect for occasions like that, isn't it.

Well Melanie, yes I have tried it. I would agree with Anonymous who characterized it as rather "ordinary" but it is what it is and not claiming to be one of the world's great teas.
