National Tea Day

Monday, April 9, 2018

Did you know that Brits drink 165 millions cups of tea EVERY DAY? So perhaps it makes sense that we have a whole day dedicated to our love of the steamy brewed beverage. On 21st April, the UK celebrates National Tea Day. There’s a whole festival (Fes-Tea-Val) taking place at Chiswick House and Gardens with tea tastings, mixology classes, celebrity baking masterclasses, and afternoon tea etiquette lessons. Can you picture anything more British?

To celebrate National Tea Day, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite Mayfair establishments where you can enjoy a fine cup of tea…
