Boston might have a turbulent history with the beverage (we did turn the harbor into a teapot in 1773), but the city has warmly embraced the genteel British tradition of afternoon tea. There’s something to be said for pausing to brew a pot of tea instead of grabbing a latte to go from the nearest coffee stand. Add a couple of scones with jam and clotted cream, dainty pastries, and finger sandwiches, and you have the makings for the most civilized hour of the day.
