We talked about the history of tea bricks being shipped across the ocean on wooden ships instead of loose tea for higher profits, the trade routes, and how tea is dried and pressed. (economics, history). The Boston Tea Party (history). The traditional British tea time at 4:00 with hot tea and cakes,scones, and/or cookies (culture). How to make hot tea with the tea brick (cooking, preparedness). The shelf life of the tea brick (Long term Storage) The proper way to drink tea, no slurping (manners).
Of course, we had to have tea...

We also had a teachable moment of family history. Grandmother's china was used, and I got to talk about her homemade meatballs, what a great cook she was, and how she was their Great Grandmother from my Mom's side of the family. I'm trying to pass along my memories of their relatives so that they aren't forgotten.
