Regular price $9.99 Sale

The Robinson Half Chest was one of 340 chests of tea thrown into Boston Harbor on the night of December 16th 1773 in the act of defiance that would become known as The Boston Tea Party. Washing up the next day in the marches of Dorchester Flats, the chest was retrieved by young John Robinson and passed down from descendant to descendant for more than 200 years. The Robinson Half Chest can now be seen at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, resting above the same body of water into which it was cast 243 years ago. While you can't own the Robinson Half Chest itself, you can take home this 3 inch cube replica.

You can also order this Robinson Half Chest replica filled with 10g of each of the five historic teas (Bohea, Conjou, Souchong, Hyson, and Singlo) that were thrown overboard during the Boston Tea Party.
