Historic Tea Talk at Tuckerton Seaport

Oct 31, 2018

The Tuckerton Seaport and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities will hold a “Revolutionary Tea” with Stacy Roth on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Hunting Shanty.

Roth is a presenter from the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. She will discuss why tea was so important in the lives of 18th century people – so important that fashion-conscious families posed for portraits with their tea sets. She will answer the question, “Did Great Britain lose her American colonies over the ‘cup that cheers?’” Roth will appear in period costume to present this free program of tea lore featuring the history, poetry and demonstration of tea pouring.

After the talk, attendees are invited to stop into the Seaport’s own Steampunk Tea Room in the historic Captain’s House featuring Lady Magpie’s Tea and Curiosities.

Register for this program on the events page of the Tuckerton Seaport website, tuckertonseaport.org. For more information, call 609-296-8868.
