Elmwood Inn Fine Teas received a commission from the National Archives in Washington to produce a private-label tea commemorating one of the pivotal events in the colonists' struggle for independence, the 1773 Boston Tea Party.

We now offer this historically-correct Chinese hyson green tea to all our customers. There were five Chinese teas aboard the three ships in Boston Harbor; three of those teas were black, and two were green. All 340 chests of loose tea went overboard on December 16.

You will find this tea in all the National Park Gift Stores across New England and in the gift shop at the Boston Tea Party Ships Museum, where our owner Bruce Richardson is the tea history consultant.

Read more about the history of tea in A Social History of Tea by Jane Pettigrew and Elmwood Inn Tea owner Bruce Richardson.

My favorite tea!

I love green tea and can be pretty picky about the tea I drink. When my last tea ran out, I bought this and drank it all the time! It's got a wonderful flavor, especially when following the instructions on the container. If steeped for too long, it can get bitter, but that goes for all good green tea.

So Fragrant and Wonderful Tasting!!

I purchased the hyson tea at the Bunker Hill Museum and gift shop in Boston. It smells so heavenly and tastes so good. I make ice tea with it and really enjoy it.I would definitely buy this again. I'm a fan of really great green tea!
