CitationA Brief History of Tea: The Rise and Fall of the Tea Importation Act (2000 Third Year Paper)
AbstractThe goal of this paper is to provide a general history of the Tea Importation Act of 1897. It focuses on the Act's legislative scheme, the Act's antecedents and amendments, and its legislative history. Special attention is paid to a twenty-year period of litigation early in the Act's history, from 1898 to 1918, challenging the Act and its enforcement under the Constitution. However, enforcement practices of the various agencies charged with the Act's administration are not addressed by the paper, except when significant to litigation or the legislative process.
