Do you ever wonder about the tea culture of your ancestors? Or maybe how and what they called "tea" or "tea parties"? Author Maria Rodale recently blogged on HuffingtonPost.com about "scandalbroth," an old, obsolete word for tea. She explains that back in the day, scandalbroth wasn't just for tea drinkers, but it was also used to describe the act of women gathering, drinking tea, and gossiping. Rodale also briefly discusses tea culture and how our current tea culture could use the word "scandalbroth." What are your favorite words that concern tea, coffee, and sweets?
