TAKING TEA TO BOSTON
Mike Jarman of Elizabeth Botham & Sons, with John Partridge, Economic Development Officer for the County of North Yorkshire, present a selection of 'Resolution Tea' and Biscuits to the Captain of HM Bark Endeavour. Who kindly agreed to ship a case of 'Resolution Tea' across the Atlantic, to present to the Mayor of Boston on their arrival.
Ships' Cook Joanna Mannington, took on board a range of victuals from Botham's; including, Resolution Tea, Plum Bread, Brack and Biscuits. Joanna said that the 2 pack Shah ginger biscuits were especially useful, as it solved a sticky problem for her. Apparently, ginger is an excellent remedy for any sailor suffering from 'Mal de Mere'. So on the trans-Atlantic crossing, anyone feeling a bit crook, will be given some Botham's Shah Biscuits!
"HM Bark Endeavour arrived in Boston
Harbour at 11a.m. on Friday 14th August. It was a bright
and sunny day, in the mid-80s with a little cloud and
some breeze - just perfect," reported Mrs. Joy
Travisano, a local of Boston, and good friend of
Botham's. (Joy used to live in Whitby).
Named after Capt.Cook's famous ship. For every pack sold we will donate 5p to the 'Resolution Trust'. This is an exciting project to build a replica of Capt.Cook's famous ship on the banks of the river Esk in Whitby. As was the original over 200 years ago.
