A robust collection of teas from the Colonial era. Included in this set:

Colonial Bohea
: By far the largest tea import during colonial times. The blend varied wildly, consisting of broken orange pekoe, pekoe, and souchong dumped in a pile and then sifted, typically the scrap tea of lower quality leaves, but was considered high quality by the colonists.

Cacao Shell Tea: Martha Washington enjoyed drinking cacao shell tea, which was made from roasted shells and sipped at breakfast.

Young Hyson: Green tea. Made from young leaves that are thinly rolled to have a long, twisted appearance that unfurls when brewed.

Peppermint: Peppermint was first classified in 1753, and was grown in colonial American gardens.

Gunpowder: Lightly roasted and tightly rolled green tea.
