A BRITISH TRADITION UNDER THREAT, SAVE THE TEAPOT !!…

Afternoon tea

According to AfternoonTea a recent report suggests that the great British tradition of drinking tea is under threat with a dramatic decline in sales of teapots. It seems that most of us now opt for a tea bag in a cup and demand for mugs has trebled over the last five years.

AfternoonTea are supporting the ‘Campaign for Civilised Tea Drinking’ launched by Debenhams to help reverse this decline and introduce people to the pleasures of drinking tea brewed in a teapot.

The ‘Save The Teapot’ website will help you find the perfect teapot for you needs and personality. Whether you are looking to build up a teapot collection or find something simple to brew your morning cuppa, you will find a wide range of teapots in all shapes, colours and sizes.

Browse the AfternoonTea website to view some of the finest teapots currently available in the UK from top retails including John Lewis, Debenhams, Twinings and Whittards of Chelsea.
