Have a taste for tea? You are not alone; by the eighteenth-century people all around the world were craving this stimulating beverage. Long before the Boston Tea Party propelled tea into the spotlight, colonists in cities up and down the Eastern seaboard were consuming the drink and all its accoutrement. In the collections of the Newport Historical Society is the epitome of eighteenth century fashionable tea consumption, a rococo teapot made by Paul Revere, which resembles the one he held in hand for his portrait by John Singleton Copley.
