Liberty Tea: Civil Disobedience in a Teapot

Saturday, April 23, 10 AM – 12 PM


Liberty Tea will be rescheduled for later in the year.

Have you ever wondered what kind of tea the early American colonists drank after the Boston Tea Party?

In this workshop, you’ll learn about some of the native plants used to make tea during and after the boycott of English tea in the 1700’s. Inspired by and learned from ancient Native American traditions, we’ll discuss how to grow and harvest these plants and demonstrate how to make simple infusions and decoctions. You’ll enjoy trying some of the teas and go home with a few samples to get you started making your own Liberty Tea.

Liberty Tea is a two-hour classroom-style workshop that includes a short walk and a live demonstration. Admission is $5 ($4 for members); this workshop is not recommended for young children. You may purchase tickets in advance or pay at the door. Cancelled in the event of rain.

This program will be held at the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center.  The nature center is located at 2222 N. College Street near the AU Fisheries and Hwy 280.  For more information, visit, email, or call 334-844-8091.
