While out campaigning, he had servants boil some water, knowing that boiling drinking water could prevent sickness. Some leaves blew into his cup, he left them there, tasted the brew, and the history of tea began, according to Liz Thompson. cont. from lifestyle Dutch traders brought tea to Europe in 1610, and when Charles II was restored to the British throne in 1660 from exile in Holland, he already had a fondness for tea.

Now, though, these collectibles aren't overseas, but rather in Greencastle and under glass in the latest exhibit at the Allison-Antrim Museum. "Basically, our exhibit is focused on tea and tea sets," said Evan Zimmerman, a docent at the museum. Only about 10 people visited the exhibit on Sunday, the first of two open houses to see it.

Well, this would explain my $25,000 tax bill. Looks like I picked the wrong year to start up a right-wing militia group. I called it “Tim's Teas,” and well, who knew? I swear, we were simply a “social welfare” organization - a strictly nonpartisan 501 something-something, which should have qualified us for tax-exempt status. Sure, we marched on Washington a few times with posters of Obama in a Hitler mustache, but hey, who didn't? Now, it turns out the IRS was flagging any group with conservative-sounding buzzwords like “tea,” or “patriot,” or “9/12” or “Rove,” and making their lives a living nightmare.
