Even those on the very fringes of European settlement could purchase a wide variety of native and imported food products. Where ever there was a need, there was a clever entrepreneur rushing to fill it. Shipping routes were established, and trade flourished across the globe, bringing even exotic products such as pineapple, coconut and chocolate to the frontier and beyond as trade goods. In a land where everything was new, people anticipated the arrival of each vessel and the opportunity to discover foods from all over the world.
Historically correct. This tea has been made in the same manner for over 200 years! It is a delicious black tea that is beautiful as well! The tea has been pressed into a “brick” with lovely relief scenes featuring Oriental temples and characters, Some people have even framed these for display! To make tea, simply remove a small bit and brew as for loose tea. Enjoy!
