George Washington Drank Chinese Tea all his Life

George Washington's first recorded order for tea dates to December of 1757, when he wrote to England seeking "6 lb. best Hyson Tea" and "6 lb. best Green Ditto." Sick and having arrived back at Mount Vernon from the frontier, Washington sent a note to his neighbor Sally requesting some foodstuffs to get him through his illness, including "a Pound, or a smaller quantity if you can't spare that, of Hyson Tea." Washington’s last known purchase was for one pound of Imperial tea the year before his death. During the Independence War, George Washington rewarded his officers with tea which was from China.
