Revolutionary Tea
1:30-2:30
Why was tea so important in the lives of 18th century people that fashion-conscious families posed for portraits with their tea sets? Did Great Britain lose her American Colonies over “the cup that cheers?” Find out in this unusual costumed presentation of tea lore, history, songs, poetry, living history display and demonstration. Presenter Stacy Roth can work with your organization to turn Revolutionary Tea into a tea tasting or 18th century tea party.
