These fine teas, specially blended for Colonial Williamsburg, include varieties that delighted colonial tea enthusiasts. In 1768, colonists consumed more than a million pounds of tea. Their willingness to boycott tea in the 1770s is a testament to their passion for revolution. Bohea (loose tea), a crisp, distinctive blend of Chinese black teas (orange pekoe, pekoe and souchong), was the overwhelming favorite of the American colonists. It was so popular that the word Bohea, pronounced Boo-Hee, was a slang term for tea. In the Boston Tea Party, 1586 chests of Bohea were destroyed.
