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

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.

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…

Boston TeaParty.nu Celebration on 12/16

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 of Liberty with a toast and a tea party. Here is an excerpt from our press release:

The reason for launching it on the Fourth of July, is to celebrate the foundation of the United States of America initiated by the patriots called Sons of Liberty. The Boston Tea Party event has an important role in the development of the American Revolution that led to the Declaration of independence.

You are welcome to join the “Tea Party Now” revolution at TeaParty.Nu (nu = now in Swedish)!

The spirit of the “Tea Party Now” movement and the mission of “connecting tea enthusiasts” is illustrated with the TeaParty.nu logotype created by John Cox.
