Free tea day 2018 - where we'll be

On Thursday 1st November 2018, we’ll be turning the grand old age of 12 (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…if it's not broke and all that. 

Where to find us on the day:

Commuters, we’re coming for you!


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

  • Gunnersbury
  • Richmond
  • Waterloo
  • Charing Cross
  • Liverpool Street
  • Paddington 
  • King's Cross

in store samplings

  • Fenwick Foodhall – Newcastle. 
  • Harvey Nichols – Edinburgh.
  • Selfridges – Trafford Centre, Manchester
  • John Lewis Food Hall – Bluewater 

We’ll be handing out hot cuppas at the regional stores listed above, 11am - 6pm 

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 hitting the streets of London, handing out tea in well known spots. Keep a close eye out for us at Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Tottenham Court Road.
