A Giant Tea Festival Is Coming To London And It’ll Be Bags Of Fun

share on:

A giant tea festival is coming to London and it’s going to be tea-riffic.

A list of things Brits are good at:

• puns

• talking about the weather

• passive aggression

• avoiding eye contact

• generally being awkward

• drinking tea

But it’s that latter one that’s important here. We are excellent at drinking tea. There’s been some sacrilegious talk recently about whether coffee has overtaken tea as Britain’s national drink, but to that we say, Nope! You’re wrong, you idiots! (Although, actually, we’d probably just leave it on an anonymous post-it note).

Anyway, back to the point. National Tea Day takes place on April 21st so, naturally, they’re throwing a big party to celebrate. And, naturally-er, they’ve named it Fes-TEA-val. (It’s also the Queen’s birthday and we don’t think that’s a coincidence). It’s set to be the most British day of the year; combining the nation’s favourite drink with lots of fun activiteas. Oh, and cake – because what’s tea without cake?

Explore the pop-up Museum of Historic Tea Ware or celebrate all things British at the British Bou-tea-que. Visit the Vitali-tea Garden for a yoga session and some herbal tea, sample tea cocktails and tea-based beers, and pick up some unique goods at the bustling tea bazaars. There’ll be so much happening over the weekend, so you should definitely go oolong.

Fes-TEA-val takes place on the 21st and 22nd April at Chiswick House and Gardens, and will be open from 10am – 5.30pm (although the Tea ‘n’ Tipple Boulevard will stay open ’til 9pm). Day tea-ckets (too much?) cost £10, or £25 for a family ticket, and you can (tea)bag yourself a ticket here.
