Colonial Coffee Gift
A handmade reproduction mug from Plimouth Plantation paired with a packet of Colonial Blend Coffee makes a perfect gift for any coffee lover!
In colonial times, coffee had strong competition from wines, liquors, and imported teas. Consequently, coffee was not widely consumed among colonists until their agitation against King George arose due to the fateful tea tax, which is undoubtedly responsible for America becoming a nation of coffee drinkers instead of tea drinkers. Coffee was supplied to the American colonies by trade from the East and West Indies.
