September 13, 2011 1:47AM
We stopped to play a game of good ol footy once against the germains. So funny, the next day we all killed each other in the trenches. But I guess between battles in the English civil war we stopped for a chill down :)
Was the Boston Tea Party the first battle of the American Revolution?
It wasn't a battle, it was a demonstration. Perhaps one of the first that damaged property. The colonists threw English tea, which had been taxed by the Crown, into the harbor. The first overt battle was at Lexington and Concord where English military faced colonists with weapons on a "battlefield".
Asked in Tea
Do English people drink tea every day?
Yes most English people do drink at least one cup a day. English people also like to stop work for a 5 min break for coffee at about 11am and for afternoon tea at about 4pm. Tea is also consumed by some English people as their breakfast drink (but some like coffee in the morning). The English also turn to a nice cup of tea in a crisis. The web sites blow sort of encapsulates the English passion for tea (and the accompanying biscuit).
Asked in Verbs
What is English tea as a verb?
Your question makes little sense. "English tea" is a adjective-noun combination that creates more specificity for the noun (tea) by giving it a state or character (English). There are a number of things one can do with English tea, such as drink it, pour it, mix it, press it, and so forth, but "I English tea-ed you" is not a valid sentence because "English tea" is not a verb.

Why do Americans love coffee where as English people love tea?
Asked in Boston Tea Party
Where was the tea from the Boston Tea Party?
It was English tea on English ships. The smugglers who brought in Dutch tea at a cheaper selling price were upset because the English had LOWERED the taxes on the English tea making their tea more pricey. This is why it was thrown into Boston Harbor (not the myth about higher taxes). Hamilton had a hand in it since he was one of the largest smugglers of Dutch products in the colonies.

What kind of tea is English Breakfast tea?
English Breakfast is a style of black tea that is defined not by its ingredients, but rather, by its characteristics. Its actual composition varies, and in general, it tends to be a blend of teas from different regions, although it rarely can be a single-origin tea. English Breakfast tea is what the English call just "tea". Normally, English Breakfast tea is a blend made exclusively from black teas. The most common types of tea used in English Breakfast blends include Ceylon tea (from Sri Lanka), Assam (from India), and teas from Kenya, with perhaps some Keemun (from China), although many other types of teas can be blended in too. The pure teas that resemble modern English Breakfast the most are usually Ceylon teas, although Keemun more closely resembles some of the older styles of English Breakfast tea.

Asked in History, Politics & Society
Why did the Americans act to the tea act?
The British lowered the tax on English tea, so the colonial smugglers had the cost of the Dutch tea become more expensive than the English. To combat this the smugglers organized the Boston Tea Party to throw English tea into the bay. The smugglers were fighting for their business and to ensure that they were able to sell their products.
