The Discovery of Tea and the Boston Tea Party
March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In this lecture we discuss the discovery of tea and its impact on history as early as the 1600’s. We will discuss how tea impacted England, the East India Company, the Townshend Revenue Act, the Boston Massacre, the Tea Act of 1773, and of course let’s not forget the Boston Tea Party. Also discussed will be the Intolerable Act, smugglers, and financial, technological and agricultural innovation, all brought about because of a simple cup of whole leaf tea!
