America’s trade relationship with China began right after the Revolutionary War. But trade with China at that time was not easy. The Middle Kingdom did not trust foreigners and confined American and European ships to the port of Canton.

American traders brought sea otter pelts; sealskins; sandalwood, běche de mer (sea cucumbers) to trade for Chinese tea, silks, spices, jade and porcelain.
