250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party Colonial Bohea - 20 Teabags in Commemorative Tea Tin

As we celebrate the remarkable 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, we reflect upon the pivotal event that shaped the course of American history and reverberates through time. In 1773, a courageous group of colonists, disenchanted by unjust taxation and determined to assert their autonomy, took a bold stand against British oppression. Led by a spirit of unity and resilience, they defiantly boarded British ships laden with precious tea and symbolically cast the cargo into the waters of Boston Harbor.

This audacious act of protest, known as the Boston Tea Party, ignited the flames of revolution and ignited the fervor of a young nation's fight for liberty. Oliver Pluff, a historical tea company rooted in this rich legacy, commemorates this milestone by honoring the indomitable spirit of those who dared to challenge the status quo, reminding us that every cup of tea holds within it the essence of freedom, courage, and the pursuit of justice.

Description:  Bohea tea, (pronounced “Boo-hee” - Ukers 510), was by far the largest tea import during colonial times. Sometimes called Bohea Souchong or Lapsang Bohea, the blend originated in China with trade to the British and Dutch East India Companies. It was so popular that the word bohea became the slang term for tea. The blend varied wildly, consisting of broken orange pekoe, pekoe, and souchong dumped in a pile and then sifted, typically the scrap tea of lower quality leaves, but was considered high quality by the colonists. 

History: In the Boston Tea Party, 242 chests of Bohea were destroyed.
