Boston Harbor, a Teapot Tonight!

Today, December 16th, is the 236th anniversary of the revolutionary Tea Party that hit the harbor of Boston.

And while the mood back then was a general discontent towards all things English (but they took it out on tea), nowadays folks are mad for the stuff!

To celebrate this momentous day, I propose that we, proud tea lovers from around the world, do our own version of pitching the tea overboard: tossing our stale, old commercial teabags into the garbage to make more room for the good stuff!

It’ll be the new tea revolution worthy of the history books!
