National Tea Day

Let’s have a cup of tea. It will do us all good and give us time to think.

Drinking tea has become almost a national pastime but only recently has it been decreed that a day of celebration be created. I give you:-

National Tea Day to be observed every year on 21 April – the birthday of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth the second to celebrate the drinking of tea.

It is to be celebrated in tea rooms, hotels, pubs and cafés throughout the realm by special and charitable fundraising events, including tea tasting festivals. Tea brands and press outlets be encouraged to run promotions and features in conjunction with the day.

 The idea was born some 3 years ago and we were part of the first one day event at the Kensington Roof Gardens (for video follow this link. https://www.facebook.com/BBCBritain/videos/1321070821310021/ ) as a result of which I was an ambassador for National Tea Day for two years.
