"The young ladies of Boston signed a pledge, 'We the daughters of those patriots who have, and do now appear for the public interest, and in that principally regard their posterity, as do with pleasure engage with them in denying ourselves the drinking of foreign tea, in hope to frustrate a plan that tends to deprive a whole community of all that is valuable to life.' They were joined by others around the country, drinking instead 'Balsamic hyperion' made from dried raspberry leaves, or infusions of other herbs. The Boston Tea Party did not destroy the American taste for tea, although few retailers in Boston dared to offer it for sale for a number of years. George and Martha Washington continuedto serve the best quality tea"
"Tea, Cold.--The value of cold tea as a beverage is not sufficently known. Litereaary men and others accustomed to a sedentary occupation would find one or twocups of cold tea taken without milk or sugar to be as stimulating as the same quantity of sherry, whilst there would be no fear of the drowsiness or dimininution of the working power which might arise from imbibing either wine or spirit. The taste for cold tea is an easily-acquired one, and worth cultivating by those who require an occasional and harmless stimulant."
The Boston Tea Party, 1773 - EyeWitness to History
"In 1949, the [newspaper] announced the 45th anniversary of the invention of iced tea in St. Louis. When the Tea Bureau, Inc., in New York held its 1951 competition for "Miss Iced Tea," only St. Louis women couldenter the race. The Tea Bureau was affirming the story that the Fair was, indeed, the birthplace of iced tea. Here's how thestory, as it is recorded in a number of sources, unfolds: Richard Blechynden, the special commissioner from the India TeaAssociation, was in the business of selling the traditional hot drink. During the hot summer of 1904, his hot tea was not exactlyin demand. So he seized the moment by sending his Singhalese waiters out with the and ice cubes in glasses--offering a refreshingnew drink. Hence, the beginning of 'iced' tea! Even the most liberal World's fair buff acknowledges that this story and the accolade'new' attributed to this drink might be a bit exaggerated. Many suggest that Blechynden did not invent the drink, but 'popularized' it, or, as some say now 're-invented' it."...Both hot and iced tea appeared on most menus at the Fair...It is highly unlikely that all these restaurants jumped on the bandwagon of Blechynden's 'new idea,' and scurried to the print shopsto have their menus reprinted!...Blechynden was hardly a desperate tea vendor! In fact, he was the highest-ranking representative from India and the director of the East India Pavilion...His waiters were not Singhalese (from Ceylon), but wereturbaned and bearded natives of India who were clad in white and who served their customers in balcony cafes rather than onstreets...Duane Sneddeker, director of library and archives for the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis...believes, 'It was during the post-WWII years, that St. Louisans were looking nostalgically at the 'good old days' and began lionizing someof the stories told about the Fair.' This same time period came upon the heels of a popular 1944 movie, , which so prominently featured the 1904 World's Fair."

"Beef tea.--Cut a pound of the lean and fresh juicy beef into small thin slices, and sprinkle them with a very little salt. Put the meat into a wide-mouthed glass or stone jar closely corked, and set it in a kettle or pan of water, which must be made to boil, and kept boiling hard round the jar for an hour more. Then take out the jar and strain the essence of the beef into a bowl. Chicken tea may be made in the same manner."
"This is 'Salada Iced Tea Week' in Sioux City. It is needless to mention that iced tea is one of the most popular American beverages. It is purely seasonable, thriving in the hot summer weather and during that brief season it is safe to say that millions of glasses of iced teaare consumed. Good iced tea depends entirely upon the kind of tea used in preparation, for its claim to popularity, and that is way Salada tea is in sucd demand, especially so during the summer months. There are some folks, perhaps, who have not hear of all the merits of'Salada Iced Tea.' or some, who maybe need to be more fully informed of same, and for these reasons the Journal merchandising departnemntis staging this special 'Salada Iced Tea Week; in Sioux City all this week. All grocers are co-operating with the big publicity program and will beglad to take care of their customers who wish to order Salada tea. There is a very beautiful display of this particular brand of tea in one of theJournal's windows at Fifth and Douglas streets, which everyone should make it a point to see. Unusual effects are employed in making this one ofthe most original and unique displays ever put in The Journal window."

One should remember that the event that preceded the Boston tea party was the French and Indian war that was extremely costly for the British Empire. In order to raise quick cash, the British king George III would increase taxes in the American colonies after the end of the war in 1763 (Wiegand, 89).
