Lady Washington circumnavigated Cape Horn from northeastern North America to northwest North America to trade metals for pelts then journeyed across the Pacific Ocean to trade the pelts for tea. One block of tea (below) would last one family a year.
Silk also became a primary commodity, along with porcelain.
Getting ready for the second tour.
