Steep Your Tea

Madeline Berendt, Kelli Walter, Nicole Olson

Fall 2015

Our argument is based on the article “Did Dutch Smugglers Provoke the Boston Tea Party?” by Benjamin L. Carp. Today, tea is an important part of many Americans’ daily routines, but many of them do not know the full story of the famous day in the colonies related to tea.
