LEXINGTON, Ky. — There are two tea-party movements in America. One favors low taxes, small government and patriotic feeling. The other favors fine china, orange pekoe and cordial chitchat.

The two have coexisted uneasily since Dec. 16, 1773, when antitax demonstrators dumped 342 chests of quite drinkable tea into Boston Harbor. Lately, tea dumpers have touched off a raucous revival. But tea sippers, enjoying a genteel revival of their own, aren’t showing the dumpers much sympathy.

“I’m promoting tea parties — just not that kind of tea party,” says Bruce Richardson, who lives in Perryville, a village 45 miles southwest of here. For a living, he imports tea, publishes books about tea and teaches tea-brewing and tea-party proprieties.

In downtown Perryville, visitors walked the streets, stopping in some of the shops, including the Itchy Dog Cafe and Antiques, a restaurant that opened on Merchants’ Row on Saturday.

Co-owner Jennifer Lanham said she and her husband, Chad, chose to open the restaurant this weekend because with the battle re-enactment there would be a lot of people in town. A grand opening will be scheduled later.

The restaurant offers many home-cooked and made-from-scratch items, including zucchini bread, that Jennifer said is of her own creation, and pork roast.

Jennifer said she has always wanted to own her own business and after going back to school to get a business degree, she felt she was at a point in her life when she had the confidence to open a restaurant.

“It really empowered me,” she said. “There wasn’t much in life I couldn’t do.”

The Itchy Dog Cafe is open Wednesday through Sunday, hours vary.
