Details

During colonial times, tea was an important part of local culture as Dutch and English immigrants brought their taste for tea to America. Tea quickly became a colonial staple and was not confined to the affluent at their tea parties. Tea in fact was considered a healthy beverage and a sign of good manners and expected hospitality. Tea became the third ranked import among American colonists after textiles and manufactured goods.

Tea played an important role in the trade links between England and the new colonies but by the latter half of the 1700's England found itself strapped for cash due to the heavy financial burdens of fighting wars and maintaining its global colonial Empire. England resorted to taxing tea on its far flung empire as a means of raising capital. These actions provoked a violent patriotic revolt and a boycott on tea purchases.

The famous Boston Tea Party was a trigger for the American revolution culminating in The Declaration of Independence in 1776. During the boycott the colonists boiled everything from pine needles, strawberry leaves, maple leaves and shrubs to stem their thirst for tea. Our blend of Ceylon and Assam tea (both major tea growing areas of the old British Empire), combined with the essence of Strawberry and Maple captures the spirit of the revolution and puts tea back into the cup.

great blend, nice flavorsReview by Sarah

This blend is a solid one, with nice smooth flavors and a rich feel. Its not artificial or overly-flavored, and I like the reliability of this cup. I recommend. Tastes wonderful with rock sugar and a touch of cream. An excellent start to the day: one of my favorites for morning, brewed strong and long! (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Tastes like the NortheastReview by Al
Rating
When I think of the northeast, I think of strawberries in the summer, VT maple syrup, and tea (because of the original colonies). This tea combines all of these things into one great cuppa! I agree with those that have said this one can replace coffee. (Posted on 5/10/2016)
1776Review by Brian
I second the first review. We don't have a coffee maker in our home. I drink this for a breakfast tea too.

My family has been a customer here since it opened, and keep a extensive variety of tea. 1776 is a staple in my collection. (Posted on 11/20/2012)
