TIL. String.raw is the "default" tag function, (almost¹) the same as writing a template literal without a tag:

String.raw`You have ${10} items` // => "You have 10 items"
`You have ${10} items`; // => "You have 10 items"

¹ Update: There are some difference between the two in regards to backslash escaping:

String.raw`Hello\nWorld`; // => "Hello\\nWorld"
`Hello\nWorld`; // => "Hello\nWorld"

You can, instead, use the dummy-tag package, which implements a default interpolation.
