Free tea day 2016 - where we'll be

On Wednesday 2nd November 2016, we’ll be turning the grand old age of TEN (whoop!) – and we feel that the only way to celebrate such a momentous occasion is to give away LOADS of free tea! 

If you’ve been with us for a while, you’ll remember last year we took to the streets of London in a big red routemaster bus, handing out tea to pretty much anyone who caught our gaze. 

This year, you’ll be pleased to hear that we’re doing exactly the same thing… only BIGGER AND BETTER (with way more tea)

Where to find us on the day:

7am – 09:30am: Commuters, we’re coming for you!


You’ll find us at the following train stations bright and early:

  • Gunnersbury
  • Waterloo
  • Paddington
  • High Street Kensington
  • Charing Cross
  • Liverpool Street
  • Kings Cross

We’re also going North of the M25 (gasp)

 We’ll be handing out LOADS of envelope samples to help all you sleepy workers start your day right!


All day:
 

Waterloo station

After filling out many, many, many health and safety forms – we’ve finally secured a pop up space at Waterloo Station all day long. Actually inside – not outside in the rain like last year.

Whether you’re feeling sleepy, stressed, adventurous or dare we say…hungover, stop by our stand where you can choose a tea to suit your mood. We’ll also have a competition open where you can win yourself a year’s supply of tea!  


We’re going guerilla

Over the years we’ve become quite accustom to riding around in our lovely routemaster bus, dishing out tea like there’s no tomorrow.

So this year, once the rush hour madness is out the way, we’ll be doing a tour of London stopping by a few well known landmarks.

Want us to stop by your office en route?  

Below are some of the key sites we'll be visiting  – if you’re office is along the way, tweet us with the tag #teapigsfreeteaday and we’ll try our best to come and visit as many of you as possible!
