Today in 1774: A resolution was passed not to use tea.
“We rest assured, that however attached we have been to that truly detestable herb, we can firmly resist the charm, and thereby convince our enemies in Great Britain and America that however artful or alluring their snared and gilded the bait, we have wisdom to foresee, and virtue to resist.
Therefor resolved that we will not buy, sell, use, or any ways be concerned with India teas of any kind, dutied or undutied imported from Great Britain, Holland, or elsewhere, until the unrighteous act of imposing duty thereon be repealed…” – #Worcester
