Dwinell-Wright’s White House Tea was one of the “well-known American package tea brands” listed by William Ukers in his 1935 publication, All About Tea (Volume 2). However, by the very next year, the company’s fortunes were in rapid descent.
The original company was founded in 1845 by James F. Dwinell. In 1888, the company introduced White House Coffee, followed by White House Tea in 1907. A few years later it was discovered that a Wisconsin company was using a similar White House label for condensed milk. The issue was first ignored, but when The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company made White House Milk their national brand, they could no longer ignore the trademark conflict.
