Tea in America Program

I presented the program for the nearby Rockcastle DAR Chapter on Monday evening. 
I have presented this program, 
"Tea in America - Before, During and After the Revolutionary War"
several times through the years for Daughters of the American Revolution Chapters, 
including my own chapter, the Berea-Laurel Ridges Chapter. 
 I demonstrated the five loose leaf Chinese teas documented to have been 
thrown overboard into the Boston Harbor on 
December 16, 1773 by the Sons of Liberty. 

Below: I demonstrated the difference between tea bag and loose leaf hand-picked teas.
 The DAR members enjoyed the history and asked several questions
about tea. I always appreciate questions after a presentation. 
Above: I am the Regent of the Berea-Laurel Ridges Chapter
and Debra Brown is the Regent of the Rockcastle Chapter.
