National Tea Day 2018: The Ultimate Fes-Tea-val

National Tea Day

Overlooked, underappreciated but never understated, National Tea Day should, in reality, be one of the crowning days in the British calendar.

Some might say ‘well, every day is tea day isn’t it?’, to those people we say ‘no!’, but it should be!

In Britain we are tied to tea, it’s part of a national stereotype that has spread across the globe. All with good reason we should add. Because we bloody love our tea!
