Tea in 18th Century America

Cover Art Painting by Pamela Patrick White

     My latest book, Tea in 18th Century America, is on the bookshelves!

     SO honored for the reviews of the book -

      "I enjoyed all aspects of your talk in July at the Paca House. You brought the colonial period--with its tea--to life for me. Your research, appreciation for history, and description with illustrations helped to make the event exceptional." ~Linda Heil, August 2023

     Laurel Scott is a veteran journalist, reenactor, and friend.  You can read her review here.

     Posted is a review by Dr. Lynn Price who is a former assistant research professor at the University of Virginia and former Assistant Editor of The Washington Papers.

     Feedback on Amazon is at this link.

     I am grateful to Lucinda Brant for writing the Foreward, and to everyone who encouraged and supported me in writing this book, including Jim McGaughey who suggested I actually do it.

     You can find a great review on the Journal of the American Revolution page!   “…the book has an intensely exciting “air” to it. It is this constant fervor that keeps the reader invested in the book.”
       “…a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the daily lives of the colonists.”  

      Muzzleloader Magazine gave a wonderful review in the March/April 2020 edition. 

     It is available via my Etsy shop.

     This book is also available on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.  Prices fluctuate on these sites, and they often times offer free shipping.  A great deal; however, the books will NOT be signed by me if that is important to you.

     This book includes so much information on the importance of tea in America during the 18th century.  There are lots of original source prints, portraits, newspaper clippings, instructions on what you need for a proper 18th century "tea", and recipes included within.  

     There is a bonus chapter about Margaret Tilghman Carroll of Mount Clare in Baltimore, Maryland where she lived with her husband, Charles Carroll, the Barrister.  She was acquainted with General George Washington and Martha Washington as well as Charles Willson Peale - who painted her portrait which is in my book courtesy of Mount Clare Museum House.
