1700s Tea Box

$60.00

Try six of our authentic specialty botanical tea blends, all recreated from colonial era recipes!
Apothecaries of the 1700s were stocked with herbal brews, including a cough and cold remedy tea made from honey, horehound, and thyme. A blend of lavender, rose flower, sage, and marjoram was said to cure headaches. European tradition was infused with Native American knowledge, as seen in our Native American Blend which combines dandelion leaf, ginger root, chickweed, and wild cherry bark. To relax, colonists relied on a mixture of mint and jasmine, a Sweet Bath. Enjoyed as a calming tea or as a fragrance in bathwater. Botanicals were also a symbol of self-reliance. After the Boston Tea Party, colonists boycotted British tea and turned to their gardens and orchards to make their own herbal teas. Using delicious and authentic ingredients such as spearmint, chamomile, sage, blueberries, apples, rose, and strawberry leaf, we’ve brought back to life two varieties of Liberty Tea. Includes four honey straws and preparation instructions on keepsake card.
