Quoted from Possum
Didn't tea become a dirty word in America, sometime after that??!! I'm surprised Boston Bun didn't at the same time - or maybe you guys always called it something different anyway?!

Yep, tea consumption declined significantly after the American Revolution. I'm not sure about the other. Is it what y'all call a Sally Lunn (or Sally Lynn?), with something like coconut-flavored frosting on top? Kiwi made us a batch of them once and I'm pretty sure that's what she called them. The only thing my seanmhair would serve with tea was a type of tea cake she baked. They looked kind of like miniture bread loaves. Not too sweet, either.

Neighbors didn't immediately have a friend sit down to a cup of tea during an emotional upheaval for nothing!

Yes I guess a Sally Lynne would be an equivalent... (altho' not being a native Kiwi, I'm not too sure?!) I was having a jibe about the Boston tea party...
