Buffalo Chop Tea

Tea Buffalo Chop

“Look at this picture of a Tea Field and note its beauty. How fresh and fair and sweet it is. The tea you steep for yourself, or your friends, madam, came from such a scene. Our house serves you with knowledge. We know the sections on which the tea we sell you grows, who selects the tender leaves, who cures them, who packs and ships to our house in Boston. Buy teas imported by us. Our TRADE MARK on FORMOSA OOLOONGS is the picture of a Buffalo — on other teas it is C &. S — and as you see these marks, you can, in fancy, see the far away plantation where it grew for you and know that from that distant spot it has come directly to your hand.” — Chase & Sanborn brochure, 1889
