Revolutionary Tea: An 18th Century Tea Experience

March 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM | Bridgewater, NJ | Heritage Trail Association (Van Horne House)
Why was tea so important in the lives of 18th-century people that fashion-conscious families posed for portraits with their tea sets? Did Great Britain lose her American Colonies over “the cup that cheers?” Through a discussion and demonstration lead by a costumed scholar, participants can find out more about tea lore, history, songs, and poetry in this unique session.
