About National Tea Day
Tea is a common household beverage both nationally and internationally. Thousands of people drink tea daily, allowing them to choose from many different delicious varieties and flavors such as earl grey, English breakfast, matcha, chai and green tea, among many more.
Established in 2016, National Tea Day was created on Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday as a way to enjoy a classic beverage and pretend you’re royalty.
National Tea Day’s slogan is “Brew More. Do More.” and the aim is to inspire special and heartwarming moments with tea.
Consisting of not only herbal, fruit, black, white and green varieties, teas are heavily ingrained in the development of culture worldwide, each region specializing in a particular variety.
Tea Houses across the UK participate by offering discounts and special promotions on afternoon and cream teas.
Afternoon Tea was introduced in Britain in the early 1840s to satisfy hunger between meals before dinner. Today, it is more of an occasional indulgence, or occurs to celebrate an event such as a birthday or baby shower among friends. Just like coffee, it can be made to your liking, either hot or cold, with sugar or another sweetener and even a milk or creamer of your choice.
