The military was called after TikTok ‘tea war’ became global



The military was called after TikTok 'tea war' became global

(CNN) – You will remember the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when American revolutionaries famously controlled Britain by throwing crates at Boston Harbor.

A new dispute about the right way to brew “cuppa” has turned into a similar international incident, with British and US ambassadors sticking their spoons.

It all began in early May when an American TikTok user named Michelle, from North Carolina, sparked outrage on various social media platforms with her controversial guide to making “hot tea”.

It involves a microwave and an unholy mixture of milk, lemon powder, cinnamon, Tang soft drinks, industrial sugar, and an innocent tea bag, which certainly deserves better things in life.

That is too much for British users, who are very proud of their homemade national drinks, with their leaves imported mainly from Kenya, India and Malawi. The twin themes in the outpouring of comments are “war crimes” and “diabetes.”

Unaffected, Michelle followed up with a guide to “English tea,” involves less physical intimacy between tea bags and water than between stiff lipped couples in “Brief meeting. ”
That’s with the video this week English egg, using canned whipped cream, that Michelle – who lives in England and may be familiar with local customs – confirms the suspicion that she is indeed very joking.

The fifth columnist TikTok has amassed more than five million Likes for his efforts, but he has also sparked the ire of the righteous in a country close to boiling point, and with much time on his hands.

So Dame Karen Pierce, the British Ambassador to the United States in Washington, summoned the military.

Yes, that is true, in a video posted on Monday, he got boys from the British Army, Navy and Air Force to show how to prepare tea in a patriotic and pukka manner. There’s even a nod of how to do high tea at height.

Pierce had armed forces behind him, but when Woody Johnson, the US Ambassador to Britain was involved on Wednesday, he became like Harry Dirty and left alone.

The strategy is a smart strategy. He pursues the weakness of England: coffee. With Britain notoriously weak in continental caffeine consumption, how could it be wrong?

The problem for Clint Eastwood from this cappuccino is that he makes what looks like a truly awful cup of coffee.

He committed the ultimate sin by using instant coffee, increasing the wrinkles of each connoisseur faster than hot water dissolving freeze-dried granules.

Because people all over the world have increased their gourmet antics during locking, with their first sourdough starter and their cold AeroPress brews, there is only one message for Johnson. Do better.

There has been no video response from Raffaele Trombetta, Italian Ambassador to Britain since 2018, and Armando Varricchio, Italian Ambassador to the US for the past four years.

There was also no comment on TikTok tea from Liu Xiaoming, the Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom, or Josephat Karanja and Gaitri I. Kumar, respectively Kenya and the Indian High Commissioner to England.

Is it time to be quiet?

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
