December 16, 1773 the historic Boston Tea Party took place when a heroic band of brave men raided an English cargo ship and tossed 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor. They were protesting British tyranny that day and today we celebrate the 246th anniversary of that event.
Every year, the Boston Tea Party Museum re-enacts this historic moment when Americans again toss tea into the Boston Harbor.
We decided to salute the Sons of Liberty by having a tea toss of our own right here at Three Sisters Tearoom. We found this little Indian getting the job done!
Happy Boston Tea Party Day, America!
Enjoy a cup of tea and celebrate your freedom.
*No tea was injured in this re-enactment.*
