The definitive guide to ‘high tea’ etymology (note that in a few months, the correct link will be here).

O Frabjous Day!

‘Tis brillig, and I have been revisiting my erstwhile haunts ’round the internet. Surprisingly, I chanced to look back to Take Our Word For It, and discovered that they have begun to make new issues again! In honor of this, I have essayed to use a more aureate patois in this update, though my writing has become rather torose. Consequently, I shall keep this short. TOWFI is an online newsletter dedicated to etymology, and they have a wheen information in the archives (a particularly emolient example can be found here). They now appear to be run by The Institute for Etymological Research and Education, which makes the articles more authoritative yet less jovial than the old ones. Nonetheless, I am quite blithe.
