From Harney & Sons

One of the finest examples of Federal Period architecture in the state of New York, this home was built for the prominent lawyer and politician, James Vanderpoel. It is currently being adapted from a house museum to the Center for Columbia County History….. a living museum that will include exhibition galleries, educational space for children and adults, restored period rooms, an expanded research facility and a stimulating learning and gathering site for the residents of the County and visitors at large.

Tea, introduced to the American colonies by the Dutch, was first brought into the port of New Amsterdam (New York, today). This exclusive tea, blended to reflect the tea imported in the Vanderpoel era, pays homage to that history and acknowledges the strong Dutch heritage of Columbia County and its significant role in the history of the Hudson River Valley. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Columbia County History

This is a very pleasant black tea. No frills, really, just straight up chinese black tea. The only barrier for some folks might be that it’s only available from Harney in an 8oz. tin (no sample sizes). The price is reasonable, though. I recommend it.
