My Country, 'Tis of Tea — The Exit Exam

Friends, I hope you all are getting ready to have a wonderful Christmas celebration with family and friends! And for those of you who have followed this series throughout 2016, I now present the final exam. I was going to make the quiz 50 questions, but my husband said that was too hard and he wouldn't do it, so I've whittled it down to 10. 

Anyone who correctly answers these 10 questions between now and 7 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016, will be entered in a drawing for a very special gift! Can you answer them? If so, just type your answers, email them to me at angelamcrae at charter dot net (or use the button at right) and you'll be entered to win. Good luck!

1. This state was the first to grant women the right to vote, and some say a tea party helped advance the suffrage effort there.

2. This state is the home of America’s only working tea plantation.

3. A tearoom in this state served meals to scientists working on the Manhattan Project.

4. This state is the home of a town called Edenton in which one Penelope Barker and 51 other women protested the Tea Act passed by the British Parliament in 1773, an event which became known as the Edenton Tea Party. 

5. This state has a city by the name of “Tea.”

6. This state is the home of Stash Tea.

  5. Fun! I know a few of the answers and remember reading others. My home state is one, I am currently visiting one, and the Edenton Tea Party NSDAR Chapter is in another. 😊
