The tea that jumped ship.

                              The tea that jumped ship.
Was it about the tea or the dreaded word tax?
In the winter of 1773, 342 tea chests were thrown overboard in objection at the Boston Harbor.
The protesters didn’t destroy the ships.
They were angry over being taxed by the monarchy so they took the many bags of tea and capsized it.
This act was seen to be the beginning of the American Revolution.
Its fascinating to look back in our history to see how it all developed.
Our biography is being rewritten all the time.
And we sure are a mixed bag of everything.
Strong and bitter at times, full- bodied with hints of many tones and aromas.
Steeped in a plethora of mixed sentiment.
