This historic Chinese black tea was one of the five teas tossed into Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773. We package this tea for the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. Elmwood Inn Fine Teas owner Bruce Richardson serves as the tea master for that great museum.

Congou was made in a more disciplined manner than the common Bohea black tea and was higher priced. If you are a fan of China's black teas such as Keemun, you'll appreciate this historic and delicious leaf.

Add milk if you wish for a breakfast tea experience much like Bostonians might have enjoyed in the 1700s.

The taste of a classic tea. I enjoy the bold full taste of this tea both hot and iced, no need for sugar or milk in my opinion.

One of the best black teas I've tried

I got a sample of this tea during a trip to Boston and the tea party museum. It tasted fantastic but I wasn't able to find it at their gift shop. So I took a picture of the tea and did a google search when I got home. Arrived two days after ordering. It is a little pricey but it is so worth it. I add a little cream and sugar and it's one of if not the best tea I have drank. I am from the south and even my southern friends who enjoy more iced sweet tea enjoy this hot as well. Buy it, you won't be disappointed .

I first discovered this tea at the Boston Museum. I was surprised by how good it was. I've made it my regular morning tea.
