Revolutionary Liber-TEA High Tea 2024

August 3, 2024 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm

During this commemorative year leading up to the 250th Anniversary of the Battle of Lexington taking place on April 19, 2025, this American Revolution-themed high tea honoring the start of the American Revolution will feature three of the five teas that were thrown overboard during the infamous Boston Tea Party in 1773: Bohea, Hyson and Souchong, provided by local area J’enwey Tea Company.

Bohea: One of the first teas imported by the East India Company in the 18th-century. This black tea was fired or dried over charcoal before being transported to the American colonies.

Hyson: This early spring green tea is picked by April 20 annually and was a favorite of both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. This tea was so desired by English consumers that it was taxed at a higher rate than other teas.

Souchong: This classic black tea came from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. It is famous for its very distinctive smoky aroma.

The teas, which can be served hot or iced, are served along with sweet and savory bites including freshly baked scones, soup, tea sandwiches and dessert plus a glass of Schramsberg Mirabelle Sparkling Rosé or a tea cocktail.
