WHAT IS NATIONAL TEA DAY ABOUT?
Did you know us British consume 165 million cups of tea a day?
That’s a lot of tea and in a sense everyday is National Tea Day, but tea is so much more than a drink, it brings people together and gets them talking in the morning, chattering in the afternoon and dunking biscuits in the evening.
It is tea as a bringer-together of people which National Tea Day celebrates, and the distinctly British values which go with that.
BT claim that you can’t get a more British day than the 21st of April as it just so happens to be our beloved Queens birthday on National Tea Day.
In 3 words NTD is about tea (obviously), community and fun. It is an opportunity for you to try new blends which you wouldn’t otherwise. It is an opportunity for dances and afternoon tea’s to take place across the country.
