The Tea and Coffee Festival: Southbank Centre, London, Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th November
As well as a range of stalls showcasing the highest quality tea, coffee and related products, there will be a plethora of exciting free activities. Jonathon Jones will be hosting a talk and tea tasting session on Saturday at 3pm about why it’s time for men to appreciate the social aspects of sharing a cuppa as well as sharing some muscular brews that chaps will find stimulating. Come on guys – tea has been too girly for its own good! Then at 6pm he will team up with the wonderful Henrietta Lovell from Rare Tea Company to attempt to blow the lid off the way tea has been misrepresented for generations - how our national drink has been demeaned, trivialised and devalued. Expect some stirring talk and some impassioned de-bunking! More info here.
