    Five Teas that Brewed a Revolution

    Eighteenth-century Bostonians understood tea not as a foreign curiosity, but as one of many global goods that signaled their participation in a worldly culture modeled after the lifestyles of their English cousins. Considering Bostonians' taste for good teas, King George's worst offense might not have been the tax on tea, but instead his willingness to send us boatloads of stale black and green teas which were past their prime.
