It’s National Tea Day! Hooray! I love our random “days” in England for varying celebrations. We have days/weeks to show love for coffee, best friends, cat ladies, speaking like a pirate, and TODAY (April 21st) for showing mad appreciation for a good old British cuppa! Tea!
I’m celebrating tea daily (in conjunction with coffee of course), so of course I’d want to write up a little something special about a milky brew and the fun that goes with it.
Thanks to my amazing friends at Doris & Co for getting in touch and giving me a heads up on it all so that I wouldn't accidentally miss it like I did the Coffee one this year! They know me all too well, they do!
So yeah! On April 21st 2017 it's National Tea Day! To celebrate Britain's love of the hot beverage, there are a whole host of fun things to be done, from an entire celebration in London, to just general appreciation of the day across social media and in your own homes! Check out www.nationalteaday.co.uk for all of the cool details, but here's just a handful of my favourite ways you can join in, taken from the site, below!
I'm definitely going to get involved, and I'd LOVE you to share your tea times with me too! Let's kick things off now, shall we?
Here’s a selection of my top tea favourites to share with you today, including a little “featurette” of one of my most favourite creamware pottery friends: Doris & Co (also featuring my too beautiful friend Harri, who allowed me the pleasure of filming her for a splash of creativity).

Not only is it "National Tea Day" but the one and only Her Majesty The Queen is celebrating her 91st Birthday!!!
"Twinings have been supplying teas to the royal household ever since Queen Victoria appointed us as a royal warrant holder and tea supplier to her household in 1837." - www.twinings.co.uk
What better way than to raise a cuppa on this very day to the lady herself?
How cute are these gift jars of individual Twining's favourites? The jars both contain individually wrapped pyramid bags (70 plus the jar for £25 each).
The "Full English Breakfast" blend Loose Leaf Pyramids are actually one of my favourites of a morning. There's a slight citrus twang to them, which gives you that little sparkle we all need to pick us up before we shoot out the door. Naturally with Twining's though, there's an enormous selection to choose from, from this more traditional blend, to its fruitier cousins with the likes of "Apple and Elderflower".
