LIMITED EDITION COMMEMORATIVE TIN

 

August 18, 2020, marks 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The amendment granted women nationwide the right to vote and followed a century of protest and social action. There were many women who participated in and led efforts at the national and local levels. Women, such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapmen Catt, Alice Paul, and others, dedicated their lives to these efforts. They held conventions, demonstrations, protests, marches, and even hosted teas to garner support across the country and affect lasting change.

 

The Label Design was inspired by the Program cover from the March 3, 1913, suffrage march where 5,000 women protested for the right to vote.

 

10% of all proceeds from sales of this commemorative will be donated to the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, New York.

Notes:  A malty blend of Assam (India), Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Kenyan black teas, English Breakfast is the most popular of blended black teas and the most common in English tea culture.  The blend was invented to be a rich, hearty black tea which is complimented well by cream and sugar.  

History:  English Breakfast was invented in 1843, and was popularized by Queen Victoria.  It was also one of the teas that Suffragists drank as they planned to change the constitution.
