Boston Afternoon Tea Party on December 16

You are welcome to join us on December 16 for a celebration of the Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773. We want to commemorate the Sons and Daughters of Liberty with a toast and an afternoon tea party, serving Boston Harbour Tea and delicious stuff with a hint of “Chai from Persia“… Martin Lindeskog of GOT-Tea-Party.com, will be announcing a new tea blend, GOT Harbor Tea.

Here is an excerpt from the song, Boston Tea Party by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band:

Are you going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?

Redcoats in the village
And there’s fighting in the streets
The Indians and the mountain men
They’re talking when they meet
The king has said, he’s going to put a tax on tea
And that’s the reason y’all Americans drink coffee

Toaster and Coaster

The post title, Toaster and Coaster, is a play with words. The photo below of TeaParty.nu tile coaster is taken with Instagram‘s toaster filter.

Talking about similar sounding words (toast and coast), I am looking forward to make a toast (in Gothenburg, on the west coast of Sweden) to the Sons and Daughters of Liberty on December 16. For your information, I had to pay SEK 305 in customs duty for importing TeaParty.nu gear (including the tile coaster). Is it time to protest against different regulations, like the Tea Act?

I want to remind you of TeaParty.nu’s first Blog Carnival on December 17. Please go to our page on BlogCarnival.com and submit your entry.

Preparing for the Boston Tea Party

We are preparing for the Boston TeaParty.nu on December 16 in Gothenburg city. Please stay tuned for an invitation via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.

TeaParty.nu gear

The tea party will start at 6 PM CET with a welcome drink (“sparkling tea”) and time for social intercourse (mingle). Around 6:30 PM, we will make a toast to the Sons and Daughters of Liberty.

Since women often purchased consumer goods for the home, the Daughters of Liberty became instrumental in upholding the boycott, particularly where tea was concerned.

After the toast we will talk about the historical event in Boston and then we will have our own version of “afternoon” (high) tea with a mix of scones, tea sandwiches and Xmas treats, e.g., ginger biscuits. During eating and talking, you will have the opportunity to participate in a fun quiz about Boston and tea. The winners will win tea related prizes.

At 7:30 PM we will announce the winners of the quiz and tell you about our plans for future events. We will then end the tea party and continue the partying at some other place, e.g. a beer cellar, drinking (Samuel Adams) beer…

Halloween Tea Drinks

Do you have a favorite Halloween tea drink? In the video clip (with a glow filter screen), I am drinking Yunnan tea with a splash of Unicum. Have you had a Moscow mule or Shanghai green tea drink with Smirnoff vodka? Time for a tea partay? :)

Twisted Tea Party

I recently attended a house-warming party. They didn’t serve tea, so I had to drink hard cider

Have you had raw tea or twisted tea?

From Christian Chensvold’s post, Smirnoff’s “Tea Partay” and the Birth of Viral Marketing Video:

Yahoo! Advertising Blog: “Tea Partay” is considered perhaps the first ad to be a huge hit on viral video sites.

Kevin Roddy: Yes, it was one of the first true experiments in this space. It used YouTube in a way it really hadn’t been used before. It hit a million people in three or four days, which was massive at the time. When we finished it, we wanted to control the distribution, but it somehow leaked out onto YouTube, and to this day I don’t know how. It wasn’t something we meant to do. Somebody posted it…I don’t who it was, and it just exploded.

YAB: So the viral aspect phenomenon wasn’t even planned?

KR: It was not. At the end of the spot, it says “Go to teapartay.com, playa,” and the website wasn’t even live. So all those millions of people who went to the site, there wasn’t even anything there yet. That’s how unprepared we were.
