April 21st National Tea Day
Did you know that Catherine of Braganza, Portugal, introduced tea to the British in 1662 when she married King Charles II? Tea, of course, got its start in China and people in the UK may have used tea prior to Catherine but Royalty would wait until 1662. In 2016 the UK named April 21st National Tea Day to honor Queen Elizabeth’s birthday.
How to celebrate – Send the Queen a birthday card. Have some tea. Throw a tea party.
