It was our 13th birthday earlier this month and we celebrated the best way we know how… with lots of free tea!

This year’s free tea day was even more special, as it was the first outing with the teapigs van, which we parked up in Covent Garden for the day. It may have come with a couple of teething problems – mainly no hot water for a couple of hours, whoops – BUT we still managed to dish up 1,000 free cuppas (including those from our festive range), and met some fab people along the way. We also had members of the team at various London train stations handing out free samples to sleepy commuters - because we all deserve a proper cuppa when we get to work, right?!

As well as this, we hosted a treasure hunt on our website, where we hid 13 gifts across the site and our twitter followers-turned-detectives tweeted us what they found for the chance to win a tea bundle; 13 winners are better than 1, after all! We were also super impressed that over 300 teapigs stockists across the globe celebrated our birthday with loads of free tea, too!

Massive thank you to team teapigs and everyone who came along or got involved online, it really was such an awesome day! You can find more photos over on our Facebook page, but here are just a few...

next stop for the teapigs van…

We’ll be at Taste of London (Tobacco Dock, 21st - 24th November) where you’ll find us located outside (but within the Tabacco Dock estate) by the main entrance. We’ll be selling hot cups of tea, as well gifts.

where would you like us to travel to?!

Now that we have our van, the future is set to have lots of road trips - huzzah! We want to visit as many UK locations as we can to spread our whole leaf message. Where would you like us to go? Tweet us - @teapigs! #tourdeteapigs
