The three ships raided in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773 contained 342 chests of Chinese teas, including 60 half-chests of singlo green tea. Singlo originated in the Singlo Mountains of Anhui Province. This was a superior grade of tea which the East India Company needed to move out of their London warehouses before it spoiled.
It's a shame that this tea was thrown to the fishes. It would have been one of the best cups of tea to ever pass a colonist's lips - if they didn't put boiling water on it!
