The best spies drink loose tea, blended not shaken. No chintz or doilies required for the coolest of Assams and Darjeelings.
In the prelude to Daniel Craig look-alike Jonathon Jones hosting a talk about why “real men drink tea” at The Tea and Coffee Festival in London at 3pm today, we are launching a campaign to encourage James Bond to be a ‘real man’ by ditching those shaken-not-stirred Martinis for the world’s favourite beverage.
‘Skyfall’ sees Daniel Craig sipping on a beer, but since 007 first appeared on our screens in 1962, the suave British gentleman is yet to be spotted drinking a quintessentially British cup of tea.
Tregothnan’s quest is to revamp the social norm of women sharing a cuppa – tea has been too girly for its own good for far too long! Why shouldn’t more of the male population meet up for a Darjeeling, Assam, Earl Grey or Chai? We need Bond to appreciate the benefits of a muscular brew!
All of Britain can back #RealMenDrinkTea
