Here’s the tea, Richmond. The Virginia Museum of History & Culture is hosting an afternoon lecture on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m to celebrate the 250th anniversary of The Boston Tea Party.

The event explores the course of events that led Bostonians to board ships and destroy hundreds of chests of East India Company tea during the evening of Dec. 16, 1773.

Afterward, guests are invited to “Tea for 250" for an opportunity to taste “revolutionary” tea along with treats from a local bakery while listening to period music.
