Caffeine Trivia 9.14.13

The heavy tea tax imposed on the colonies in 1773, which caused the “Boston Tea Party,” resulted in America switching from tea to coffee. Drinking coffee was an expression of freedom.

Personal note: Today, the words “Tea Party” have a very different meaning for Americans….but when it comes to drinking coffee…I am thankful for this “expression of freedom”.
