National Tea Day Event 2024!

Celebrate the magic of tea with our National Tea Day Event 2024!

National Tea Day is the time Britain takes to celebrate its love for the humble cuppa. Our love for tea is so deep that collectively we consume more than 60 billion cups a year as a nation. That’s upwards of 165 million cups a day!

We love hearing about the moments our communiTEA across the globe are sharing with a mug of tea by their side, from a breakfast brew to start the day to a calming cuppa before bed. Often, those moments include a perfectly paired snack to go alongside your brew.

That got us thinking about what the most popular foods to pair with a cuppa are, so we asked the nation - & the results might surprise you!

It won’t come as a shock to hear that many of the nation’s favourite foods to pair with a cuppa are sweet treats - & we wholeheartedly agree, as many of these delicious delights have been the inspiration behind some of our best-selling tea blends!

 But it’s not all sweet treats. We discovered some rather more unusual tea & food pairings, including tea with a cheeseburger - loved by one in five of those surveyed - tea with a Sunday roast, & even a tea with Marmite spread on ‘literally anything’!

Here are the top 10 unlikTEA sipping & snacking choices, revealed by our research!
