1001 is sending you a signal to pop the kettle on and make a cuppa, because it’s National Tea Day!


About National Tea Day

Afternoon tea is the quintessential British experience, which is why April 21 is known as National Tea Day in the United Kingdom. Tea has been a long-time comforting hot drink for many, and it only seems to grow stronger with time!

The tagline for National Tea Day is “Brew More. Do More.” The idea is to use tea as a catalyst to encourage those little magical moments.

National Tea Day is a relatively recent national day as it was established in 2016, and with April 21 being Queen Elizabeth’s birthday – there couldn’t have been a better selection!

Is it possible that the day could be any more British?
