Tea for two

Most of the “national” days we mention here refer to the United States, since that’s where we live (and since Americans seem to have an obsession with special days to observe anything and everything). However, let’s be clear: National Tea Day is (unsurprisingly) a British thing. I’m sure our friends in the U.K. are happy for us to celebrate it too, as long as we use boiling water and, preferably, a proper teapot to prepare the tea. And, you know, don’t dump it in the harbor. In case you’re trying to decide what kind of tea to have today, a little birdie tells me white tea is especially nice.
