How did colonial Americans drink tea, and how did an uncommon beverage from the Far East become wildly popular in virtually every household in the 18th century? Come to Mount Clare to learn about tea rituals and customs which the Carrolls and their contemporaries would have been familiar with. Try your hand at mimicking them with tea from a company that was present in the 18th century, along with historically accurate biscuits and other refreshments that will be provided during the program. The event includes a discussion about 18th century tea customs and how it reached colonial America through Great Britain, as well as a tour of the house, specifically focusing on tea related items in each room. Participants bring their tea cup home! Bring your favorite history or tea enthusiast and come to Mount Clare Museum House for this special event.
