Weddle Tea

I just received a box of Weddle Tea that I got on eBay. In 1969 I visited the Weddle Tea Company in New York. It was located in a building at the corner of Wall and Water Streets in lower Manhattan where a skyscraper now stands. The owners were not Weddles but they did offer me a job - I think it was to be on hand when a creditor would call and ask to speak to Weddle! Back then every shipment of tea entering the U.S. had to be tasted by official government tea tasters, I saw the special table that they used. I am not sure when the company finally went out of business - I would guess in the seventies.

We put in some new plants this evening. Heather's cat supervised from the window!
