Abigail's Blend | Historic Boston Black Tea Information

212°F

4 - 5 minutes

Premium black tea
Origin:
India, China, Kenya

Elmwood Inn Fine Teas' founder, Bruce Richardson, also serves as the Tea Master for the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. He was commissioned to design this signature tea for their 100-seat Abigail's Tearoom - named for Abigail Adams - that sits atop the museum in Boston Harbor.

Bruce created this historic blend of black teas to be reminiscent of the Chinese black teas tossed overboard in 1773 by using teas from across the British Empire, including China, India, and Kenya.

This is a versatile blend that appeals to all of our visitors from around the world. If you are a fan of English Breakfast blends - with or without milk - you will love this tea. It also makes a great iced tea.

Let's just say that if the 5-year-old Chinese teas aboard the three East India ships in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773, had tasted this good, the colonists would never have dumped it into the sea, and we would still be flying the British flag here in America!

Also available in pyramid sachets.

The best

This is my favorite black tea. Makes the best iced tea in summer and delicious hot by itself or with milk and honey.

Excellent tea. I brew loose tea in the morning, and Abigail’s blend also makes wonderful ice tea! I will be a customer of Elmwood’s Teas for life.

Favorite tea of all time

This blend is, in my opinion, the perfect balance of nuance and flavor. I go for this when I want a good, solid black tea that will cut through the sweetness of desserts or round out a hearty breakfast.

Usually my FAV black tea; however, this batch is herbally for some reason. Due to food allergies I can only have plain black tea. I hope this was a one time only occurrence.

The perfect alternative to coffee!

I've been trying to find a tea that gives me the same caffeine as coffee in the morning, and this blend gives me just the jolt I need to stay awake! And, of course, it doesn't hurt that it has a strong taste :) another one that pairs well with a bit of sugar if you are feeling like a treat!
