Taste Through Time: Spilling the Tea Since 1773

December 17 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free – $12

This edition of Taste Through Time will be a discussion and tea tastings for the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party!

Come to the Historic Kenmore Kitchen to sip the teas that American Patriots dumped in Boston Harbor last night (December 16) in 1773. While sipping your rebellious beverage, warm up out of the cold with a seat by the fire and hear discussions about why the tea was dumped and the implications made on all of American History because of it.

See a demonstration of how tea was made, poured, and enjoyed in the 18th century (before the boycott, of course). Children can toss their own tea in a simulated tea party for themselves. At the end of it all, have a vote on whether or not you would have partaken in this act if given the choice.

The kitchen will be open throughout the day, and entry is included with general admission fees. Visitors may reserve house tour tickets online or purchase on-site at the front desk. Museum-only admission can be purchased on-site. Both admission rates include entry to the kitchen.
