According to Debenhams, the great British tradition of drinking tea is under threat – sales of teapots are sinking, while mugs are flying off the shelves.
We’re pleased to hear that the department store is fighting back by launching a Campaign for Civilised Tea Drinking, where the five million cups of tea sold in its restaurants each year will be served in teapots, with a cup and saucer.
Meanwhile, other stories in the news show that the British love of a nice cup of tea is not lost. Designer Ali Miller, has been inundated with orders after her teapot was recently featured in an episode of the BBC drama Sherlock.
